EC 1.5.1.39     
Accepted name: FMN reductase [NAD(P)H]
Reaction: FMNH2 + NAD(P)+ = FMN + NAD(P)H + H+
Other name(s): FRG
Systematic name: FMNH2:NAD(P)+ oxidoreductase
Comments: Contains FMN. The enzyme can utilize NADH and NADPH with similar reaction rates. Different from EC 1.5.1.42, FMN reductase (NADH) and EC 1.5.1.38, FMN reductase (NADPH). The luminescent bacterium Vibrio harveyi possesses all three enzymes [1]. Also reduces riboflavin and FAD, but more slowly.
