ENZYME entry: EC 1.6.5.5

Accepted Name
NADPH:quinone reductase.
Alternative Name(s)
Quinone oxidoreductase.
Zeta-crystallin.
Reaction catalysed
NADPH + 2 quinone <=> NADP(+) + 2 semiquinone
Cofactor(s)
Zn(2+).
Comment(s)
  • Specific for NADPH.
  • Catalyzes the one-electron reduction of certain quinones, with the orthoquinones 1,2-naphthoquinone and 9,10-phenanthrenequinone being the best substrates.
  • Dicoumarol (cf. EC 1.6.5.2) and nitrofurantoin are competitive inhibitors with respect to the quinone substrate.
  • The semiquinone free-radical product may be non-enzymically reduced to the hydroquinone or oxidized back to quinone in the presence of O(2).
  • Abundant in the lens of the eye of some mammalian species.
