Accepted name: mycothione reductase
Reaction: 2 mycothiol + NAD(P)+ = mycothione + NAD(P)H + H+
Glossary: mycothiol = 1-O-[2-(N2-acetyl-L-cysteinamido)-2-deoxy--D-glucopyranosyl]-1D-myo-inositol
mycothione = oxidized (disulfide) form of mycothiol
Other name(s): mycothiol-disulfide reductase
Systematic name: mycothiol:NAD(P)+ oxidoreductase
Comments: Contains FAD. No activity with glutathione, trypanothione or coenzyme A as substrate.
