IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: quinate/shikimate dehydrogenase (quinone)

Reaction: quinate + quinone = 3-dehydroquinate + quinol

For diagram of reaction click here

Glossary: quinate = (1R,3R,4R,5R)-1,3,4,5-tetrahydroxycyclohexanecarboxylic acid and is a cyclitol carboxylate
The numbering system used for the 3-dehydroquinate is that of the recommendations on cyclitols, sections I-8 and I-9: and is shown in the reaction diagram. The use of the term '5-dehydroquinate' for this compound is based on an earlier system of numbering.

Other name(s): NAD(P)+-independent quinate dehydrogenase; quinate:pyrroloquinoline-quinone 5-oxidoreductase; quinate dehydrogenase (quinone)

Systematic name: quinate:quinol 3-oxidoreductase

Comments: The enzyme is membrane-bound. Does not use NAD(P)+ as acceptor. Contains pyrroloquinoline-quinone. cf. EC, quinate/shikimate dehydrogenase (NAD+), EC, quinate/shikimate dehydrogenase [NAD(P)+], and EC, shikimate dehydrogenase (NADP+).
