Accepted name: ribosyldihydronicotinamide dehydrogenase (quinone)
Reaction: 1-(β-D-ribofuranosyl)-1,4-dihydronicotinamide + a quinone = 1-(β-D-ribofuranosyl)nicotinamide + a quinol

Other name(s): NRH:quinone oxidoreductase 2; NQO2; NAD(P)H:quinone oxidoreductase-2 (misleading); QR2; quinone reductase 2; N-ribosyldihydronicotinamide dehydrogenase (quinone); NAD(P)H:quinone oxidoreductase2 (misleading)
Systematic name: 1-(β-D-ribofuranosyl)-1,4-dihydronicotinamide:quinone oxidoreductase
Comments: A flavoprotein. Unlike EC, NAD(P)H dehydrogenase (quinone), this quinone reductase cannot use NADH or NADPH; instead it uses N-ribosyl- and N-alkyldihydronicotinamides. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, such as benz[a]anthracene, and the estrogens 17β-estradiol and diethylstilbestrol are potent inhibitors, but dicoumarol is only a very weak inhibitor [2]. This enzyme can catalyse both 2-electron and 4-electron reductions, but one-electron acceptors, such as potassium ferricyanide, cannot be reduced [3].
