Glutamate formimidoyltransferase is a methyltransferase enzyme which uses tetrahydrofolate as part of histidine catabolism. It catalyses two reactions:

  • 5-formimidoyltetrahydrofolate + L-glutamate <=> tetrahydrofolate + N-formimidoyl-L-glutamate
  • 5-formyltetrahydrofolate + L-glutamate <=> tetrahydrofolate + N-formyl-L-glutamate

It is classified under EC and in mammals is found as part of a bifunctional enzyme that also has formimidoyltetrahydrofolate cyclodeaminase activity.[1]
