Calculated catalytic rate (kcat) of formate dehydrogenase (FDH)

Value 260 1/s
Organism Alcaligenes eutrophus
Reference Friedebold J, Bowien B. Physiological and biochemical characterization of the soluble formate dehydrogenase, a molybdoenzyme from Alcaligenes eutrophus. J Bacteriol. 1993 Aug175(15):4719-28.PubMed ID8335630
Method The kcat was determined by combining two measurements from the paper. The specific activity (80 U/mg) and the molecular weight of the enzyme (197,000) and then using the equation: kcat = SA*MW/60,000
