EC 1.1.1.354     
Accepted name: farnesol dehydrogenase (NAD+)
Reaction: (2E,6E)-farnesol + NAD+ = (2E,6E)-farnesal + NADH + H+

Other name(s): NAD+-farnesol dehydrogenase
Systematic name: (2E,6E)-farnesol:NAD+ 1-oxidoreductase
Comments: The enzyme from the prune mite Carpoglyphus lactis also acts on geraniol with greater activity [cf. EC 1.1.1.347, geraniol dehydrogenase (NAD+)]. Unlike EC 1.1.1.216, farnesol dehydrogenase (NADP+), this enzyme cannot use NADP+ as cofactor.
