Accepted name: NADH peroxidase
Reaction: NADH + H+ + H2O2 = NAD+ + 2 H2O
Other name(s): DPNH peroxidase; NAD peroxidase; diphosphopyridine nucleotide peroxidase; NADH-peroxidase; nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide peroxidase; NADH2 peroxidase
Systematic name: NADH:hydrogen-peroxide oxidoreductase
Comments: A flavoprotein (FAD). Ferricyanide, quinones, etc., can replace H2O2.
