IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 1.2.99.6

Names

Accepted name:
carboxylate reductase
Other names:
carboxylic acid reductase
aldehyde:(acceptor) oxidoreductase
Systematic name:
aldehyde:acceptor oxidoreductase

Reaction

Cofactor

Comments:

A tungsten protein. Methylviologen can act as acceptor. In the reverse direction, non-activated acids are reduced by reduced viologens to aldehydes, but not to the corresponding alcohols.
