Enzyme Commission Primary Name: NADPH dehydrogenase (quinone)
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (quinone) dehydrogenase, NADPH oxidase, NADPH2 dehydrogenase (quinone)
Enzyme Commission Summary:
A flavoprotein [Koli69, Hayashi90]. The enzyme from Escherichia coli is specific for NADPH and is most active with quinone derivatives and ferricyanide as electron acceptors [Hayashi96a]. Menaquinone can act as acceptor. The enzyme from hog liver is inhibited by dicoumarol and folic acid derivatives but not by 2,4-dinitrophenol [Koli69].
