Enoyl-(acyl-carrier-protein) Reductase (NADPH, B-specific)

Enoyl-(acyl-carrier-protein) Reductase (NADPH, B-specific)

In enzymology, an enoyl- reductase (NADPH, B-specific) (EC 1.3.1.10) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

acyl- + NADP+ trans-2,3-dehydroacyl- + NADPH + H+

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are ]] and NADP+, whereas its 3 products are ]], NADPH, and H+.

This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, to be specific, those acting on the CH-CH group of donor with NAD+ or NADP+ as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is acyl-:NADP+ oxidoreductase (B-specific). Other names in common use include acyl-ACP dehydrogenase, reductase, enoyl- (reduced nicotinamide, adenine dinucleotide phosphate), NADPH 2-enoyl Co A reductase, enoyl acyl-carrier-protein reductase, enoyl-ACP reductase, and enoyl- reductase (NADPH, B-specific). This enzyme participates in fatty acid biosynthesis.
