EC 18.104.22.1684 - Farnesol dehydrogenase (NAD+)
IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
- (2E,6E)-farnesol + NAD+ = (2E,6E)-farnesal + NADH + H+
The enzyme from the prune mite Carpoglyphus lactis also acts on geraniol with greater activity [cf. 22.214.171.1247, geraniol dehydrogenase (NAD+)]. Unlike EC 126.96.36.199, farnesol dehydrogenase (NADP+), this enzyme cannot use NADP+ as cofactor.
