ENZYME entry: EC 1.3.1.8

Accepted Name
Acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (NADP(+)).
Alternative Name(s)
2-enoyl-CoA reductase.
Enoyl coenzyme A reductase.
Reaction catalysed
Acyl-CoA + NADP(+) <=> 2,3-dehydroacyl-CoA + NADPH
Comment(s)
  • The liver enzyme acts on enoyl-CoA derivatives of carbon chain length 4 to 16, with optimum activity on 2-hexenoyl-CoA.
  • In Escherichia coli, cis-specific and trans-specific enzymes exist (cf. EC 1.3.1.37 and EC 1.3.1.38).
