Accepted name: demethylphylloquinone reductase
Reaction: demethylphylloquinone + NADPH + H+ = demethylphylloquinol + NADP+
Glossary: demethylphylloquinone = 2-phytyl-1,4-naphthoquinone
Other name(s): ndbB (gene name); NDC1 (gene name); demethylphylloquinone:NADPH oxidoreductase
Systematic name: NADPH:demethylphylloquinone oxidoreductase
Comments: The enzyme, found in plants and cyanobacteria, is involved in the biosynthesis of phylloquinone (vitamin K1), an electron carrier associated with photosystem I. The enzyme is a type II NADPH dehydrogenase and requires a flavine adenine dinucleotide cofactor.
