Flavin reductase

Flavin reductase

In enzymology, a flavin reductase (EC number|1.5.1.30) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

:reduced riboflavin + NADP+ ightleftharpoons riboflavin + NADPH + H+

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are reduced riboflavin and NADP+, whereas its 3 products are riboflavin, NADPH, and H+.

This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on the CH-NH group of donors with NAD+ or NADP+ as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is reduced-riboflavin:NADP+ oxidoreductase. Other names in common use include NADPH:flavin oxidoreductase, riboflavin mononucleotide (reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, phosphate) reductase, flavin mononucleotide reductase, flavine mononucleotide reductase, FMN reductase (NADPH), NADPH-dependent FMN reductase, NADPH-flavin reductase, NADPH-FMN reductase, NADPH-specific FMN reductase, riboflavin mononucleotide reductase, riboflavine mononucleotide reductase, NADPH2 dehydrogenase (flavin), and NADPH2:riboflavin oxidoreductase.
