ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
11-cis-retinol dehydrogenase.
Reaction catalysed
11-cis-retinol--[retinol-binding protein] + NAD(+) <=> 11-cis-retinal--[retinol-binding protein] + H(+) + NADH
  • This enzyme, abundant in the retinal pigment epithelium, catalyzes the reduction of 11-cis-retinol to 11-cis-retinal while the substrate is bound to the retinal-binding protein.
  • This is a crucial step in the regeneration of 11-cis-retinal, the chromophore of rhodopsin.
  • The enzyme can also accept other cis forms of retinol.
