Enzymatic reaction of: N1-acetyl-N2-formyl-5-methoxykynuramine formamidase

Inferred from experiment

N1-acetyl-N2-formyl-5-methoxykynuramine + H2O → N-acetyl-5-methoxykynurenamine + formate + H+

The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, is in accordance with the direction in which it was curated.

The reaction is favored in the direction shown.

In Pathways: superpathway of melatonin degradation, melatonin degradation III

Summary:
The conversion of N1-acetyl-N2-formyl-5-methoxykynuramine to N-acetyl-5-methoxykynurenamine was demonstrated using partially purified rabbit brain formamidase. The substrate was derived enzymatically from radiolabeled melatonin [Hirata74].
