IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
CoA-disulfide reductase
Other names:
CoA-disulfide reductase (NADH2)
NADH2:CoA-disulfide oxidoreductase
coenzyme A disulfide reductase
NADH:CoA-disulfide oxidoreductase
CoA-disulfide reductase [NAD(P)H]
CoA:NAD+ oxidoreductase [misleading]
Systematic name:
CoA:NADP+ oxidoreductase




A flavoprotein. Not identical with EC (cystine reductase), EC (glutathione-disulfide reductase) or EC (bis-γ-glutamylcystine reductase). The enzyme from the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus has a strong preference for NADPH [3], while the bacterium Bacillus megaterium contains both NADH and NADPH-dependent enzymes [1].
