S-formylglutathione hydrolase (ESD, esterase D) is a homodimeric enzyme in the ER lumen of red blood cells that can hydrolyse S-formylglutathione (S-FGSH) to glutathione (GSH) and formate (Hopkinson et al. 1973, Eiberg & Mohr 1986). It is also able to hydrolyse 4-methylumbelliferyl acetate (not shown here).
