Accepted name: peptide deformylase
Reaction: formyl-L-methionyl peptide + H2O = formate + methionyl peptide
Other name(s): N-formylmethionylaminoacyl-tRNA deformylase
Systematic name: formyl-L-methionyl peptide amidohydrolase
Comments: Requires iron(II). Also requires at least a dipeptide for an efficient rate of reaction. N-terminal L-methionine is a prerequisite for activity but the enzyme has broad specificity at other positions. Differs in substrate specifity from EC (formylmethionine deformylase).
