ENZYME entry: EC 1.8.1.13

Accepted Name
Bis-gamma-glutamylcystine reductase.
Alternative Name(s)
Bis-gamma-glutamylcystine reductase (NADPH).
NADPH:bis-gamma-glutamylcysteine oxidoreductase.
Reaction catalysed
2 gamma-glutamylcysteine + NADP(+) <=> bis-gamma-glutamylcystine + NADPH
Cofactor(s)
FAD.
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, which is found only in halobacteria, maintains the concentration of gamma-glutamylcysteine, the major low molecular weight thiol in halobacteria.
  • Not identical with EC 1.8.1.7 or EC 1.8.1.14.
  • Formerly EC 1.6.4.9.
