ENZYME entry: EC 1.3.1.81

Accepted Name
(+)-pulegone reductase.
Reaction catalysed
  • (-)-menthone + NADP(+) <=> (+)-pulegone + NADPH
  • (+)-isomenthone + NADP(+) <=> (+)-pulegone + NADPH
Comment(s)
  • NADH cannot replace NADPH as reductant.
  • The Delta(8,9)-double bond of (+)-cis-isopulegone and the Delta(1,2)- double bond of (+-)-piperitone are not substrates.
  • The enzyme from peppermint (Mentha x piperita) converts (+)-pulegone into both (-)-menthone and (+)-isomenthone at a ratio of 70:30 for native enzyme but it does not catalyze the reverse reaction.
