Enzymes and Genes:

Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 : S-formylglutathione hydrolase Inferred from experiment : yeiG
S-formylglutathione hydrolase Inferred from experiment : frmB
Homo sapiens : S-formylglutathione hydrolase Inferred from experiment
Paracoccus denitrificans : S-formylglutathione hydrolase Inferred from experiment : fghA

In Pathway: formaldehyde oxidation II (glutathione-dependent)

The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the direction in which it was curated.

Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3, and some reactions have been computationally balanced for hydrogen by adding free protons. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.

Mass balance status: Balanced.
