IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: CoA-glutathione reductase

Reaction: CoA + glutathione + NADP+ = CoA-glutathione + NADPH + H+

Other name(s): coenzyme A glutathione disulfide reductase; NADPH-dependent coenzyme A-SS-glutathione reductase; coenzyme A disulfide-glutathione reductase; NADPH2:CoA-glutathione oxidoreductase

Systematic name: glutathione:NADP+ oxidoreductase (CoA-acylating)

Comments: A flavoprotein. The substrate is a mixed disulfide. May be identical to EC, thioredoxin-disulfide reductase.
