NAD+-dependent formate dehydrogenases are widely distributed among methanol oxidizing bacteria, as well as certain strains of yeast and some plants [Jollie91]. These enzymes vary considerably in subunit structure and prosthetic group requirement.

The tungsten-containing NAD-dependent formate dehydrogenase from M. extorquens is a heterodimer containing iron-sulfur clusters, FMN and tungsten. It is somewhat unusual to find a tungsten-containing enzyme in aerobic bacteria, although several other examples have been found.

The smaller β subunit appears to be a fusion protein, with its N-terminal domain related to NueE-like subunits, and its C-termonal domain related to NuoF-like subunits of known NADH-ubiquinone oxidoreductases [Laukel03].
