motifs/domains
  • N-terminal domain (AAs 1310) shares sequence homology and structural topology with other enzymes utilizing 10-fTHF as a substrate
  • a acyl carrier domain
  • C-terminal domain (AAs 400902) originates from an aldehyde dehydrogenase-related gene
  • mono polymer homomer , tetramer
    HOMOLOGY
    interspecies homolog to Drosophila CG8665

    basic FUNCTION
  • catalyzing the conversion of 10-formyltetrahydrofolate, NADP and water to tetrahydrofolate, NADPH and carbon dioxide
  • induces phosphorylation of TP53 at Ser6, which is a required step in the activation of apoptosis
  • induces phosphorylation of MAPK8 and MAPK9
  • folate enzyme with tumor suppressor-like properties that inhibits cell motility
  • CELLULAR PROCESS
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS electron transport
    PATHWAY

    signaling
    10-formyltetrahydrofolate catabolism
    a component
  • tetramer of four identical 902-AAs subunits, and each is a product of the natural fusion of three unrelated genes corresponding to three distinct functional domain
