This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on the CH-NH group of donors with NAD+ or NADP+ as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is FMNH2:NAD+ oxidoreductase. Other names in common use include NADH-FMN reductase, NADH-dependent FMN reductase, NADH:FMN oxidoreductase, NADH:flavin oxidoreductase, NADH2 dehydrogenase, NADH2:FMN oxidoreductase, SsuE, riboflavin mononucleotide reductase, flavine mononucleotide reductase, riboflavin mononucleotide reductase, flavin mononucleotide reductase, and riboflavine mononucleotide reductase.
