Reaction: hydrogen sulfide + (sulfide)n + NADP+ = (sulfide)n+1 + NADPH + H+
Other name(s): SuDH
Systematic name: hydrogen sulfide,polysulfide:NADP+ oxidoreductase
Comments: A iron-sulfur flavoprotein. In the archaeon Pyrococcus furiosus the enzyme is involved in the oxidation of NADPH which is produced in peptide degradation. The enzyme also catalyses the reduction of sulfur with lower activity.
