Accepted name: oxoglutarate dehydrogenase (NADP+)
Reaction: 2-oxoglutarate + CoA + NADP+ = succinyl-CoA + CO2 + NADPH
Other name(s): oxoglutarate dehydrogenase (NADP)
Systematic name: 2-oxoglutarate:NADP+ 2-oxidoreductase (CoA-succinylating)
Comments: The Euglena enzyme can also use NAD+ as acceptor, but more slowly.
