Accepted name: arsenate reductase (donor)
Reaction: arsenite + acceptor = arsenate + reduced acceptor
Other name(s): arsenate:(acceptor) oxidoreductase
Systematic name: arsenate:acceptor oxidoreductase
Comments: Benzyl viologen can act as an acceptor. Unlike EC, arsenate reductase (glutaredoxin), reduced glutaredoxin cannot serve as a reductant.
