With NAD+ or NADP+ as acceptor
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
acyl-CoA:NADP+ 2-oxidoreductase
Reaction(IUBMB)
acyl-CoA + NADP+ = 2,3-dehydroacyl-CoA + NADPH + H+ [RN:R00385]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
acyl-CoA [CPD:C00040];
NADP+ [CPD:C00006]
Product
2,3-dehydroacyl-CoA [CPD:C00605];
NADPH [CPD:C00005];

Comment
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 [EC 1.3.1.37 cis-2-enoyl-CoA reductase (NADPH) and EC 1.3.1.38 trans-2-enoyl-CoA reductase (NADPH)].
