In enzymology, an FMN reductase is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction+ The 3 substrates of this enzyme are FMNH2, NAD+, and NADP+, whereas its 4 products are FMN, NADH, NADPH, and H+. 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.
U.S. National Library of Medicine
An enzyme that utilizes NADH or NADPH to reduce FLAVINS. It is involved in a number of biological processes that require reduced flavin for their functions such as bacterial bioluminescence. Formerly listed as EC 188.8.131.52
