Accepted name: 3-oxoacyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] reductase (NADH)

Reaction: a (3R)-3-hydroxyacyl-[acyl-carrier protein] + NAD+ = a 3-oxoacyl-[acyl-carrier protein] + NADH + H+

Other name(s): 3-oxoacyl-[acyl carrier protein] (reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) reductase; 3-oxoacyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] reductase (NADH2)

Systematic name: (3R)-3-hydroxyacyl-[acyl-carrier protein]:NAD+ oxidoreductase

Comments: Forms part of the fatty acid synthase system in plants. Can be separated from EC 3-oxoacyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] reductase.
