AFMID 17:76183398-76203782

Forward strand gene: arylformamidase

Also known as: KF, DKFZp686F03259, ENSG00000183077

Function: 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. Source: UniProt
