- an aromatic alcohol + NADP+ an aromatic aldehyde + NADPH + H+
This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on the CH-OH group of donor with NAD+ or NADP+ as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is aryl-alcohol:NADP+ oxidoreductase. Other names in common use include aryl alcohol dehydrogenase (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, phosphate), coniferyl alcohol dehydrogenase, NADPH-linked benzaldehyde reductase, and aryl-alcohol dehydrogenase (NADP+).
