Oxidoreductase, N-terminal (IPR000683)

Short name: Oxidoreductase_N

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



This group of enzymes utilise NADP or NAD, and is known as the GFO/IDH/MOCA family in UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot. GFO is a glucose--fructose oxidoreductase, which converts D-glucose and D-fructose into D-gluconolactone and D-glucitol in the sorbitol-gluconate pathway. MOCA is a rhizopine catabolism protein which may catalyse the NADH-dependent dehydrogenase reaction involved in rhizopine catabolism. Other proteins belonging to this family include Gal80, a negative regulator for the expression of lactose and galactose metabolic genes; and several hypothetical proteins from yeast, Escherichia coli and Bacillus subtilis.

The oxidoreductase, N-terminal domain is almost always associated with the oxidoreductase, C-terminal domain (see IPR004104).
