Summaries for AFMID Gene

GeneCards Summary for AFMID Gene

AFMID (Arylformamidase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with AFMID include glaucomatocyclitic crisis. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and CDK-mediated phosphorylation and removal of Cdc6. GO annotations related to this gene include hydrolase activity and arylformamidase activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for AFMID Gene

  • Catalyzes the hydrolysis of N-formyl-L-kynurenine to L-kynurenine, the second step in the kynurenine pathway of tryptophan degradation. Kynurenine may be further oxidized to nicotinic acid, NAD(H) and NADP(H). Required for elimination of toxic metabolites.
