Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Enzyme: NADH dehydrogenase (quinone)

Subunit composition of NADH dehydrogenase (quinone) = [subunit of NADH dehydrogenase (quinone)]2

This NADH dehydrogenase enzyme is thought to compete with the one-electron reduction pathway of quinones, which is potentially toxic as it generates superoxide radicals and hydrogen peroxide [Hayashi90].

The intracellular level of this enzyme is increased 23-fold by growth in the presence of 0.3 mM menadione, but not paraquat [Hayashi90]. The critical inductive signal is a 2-alkyl-1.4-quinone structure with an unsubstitued or Br-substituted C-3 [Unemoto92].

No gene has been identified for this enzyme yet. Based on its properties, it is possible that this enzyme is identical to either NAD(P)H:quinone oxidoreductase or chromate reductase.
