IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
arsenate reductase (donor)
Other name:
arsenate:(acceptor) oxidoreductase
Systematic name:
arsenate:acceptor oxidoreductase



Benzyl viologen can act as an acceptor. Unlike EC, arsenate reductase (glutaredoxin), reduced glutaredoxin cannot serve as a reductant.
