Accepted name: vitamin-K-epoxide reductase (warfarin-insensitive)
Reaction: 3-hydroxy-2-methyl-3-phytyl-2,3-dihydro-1,4-naphthoquinone + oxidized dithiothreitol = 2,3-epoxy-2-methyl-3-phytyl-2,3-dihydro-1,4-naphthoquinone + 1,4-dithiothreitol
Glossary: 2,3-epoxy-2-methyl-3-phytyl-2,3-dihydro-1,4-naphthoquinone = vitamin K 2,3-epoxide
Systematic name: 3-hydroxy-2-methyl-3-phytyl-2,3-dihydronaphthoquinone:oxidized-dithiothreitol oxidoreductase
Comments: Vitamin K 2,3-epoxide is reduced to 3-hydroxy- (and 2-hydroxy-) vitamin K by 1,4-dithiothreitol, which is oxidized to a disulfide. Not inhibited by warfarin [cf. EC, vitamin-K-epoxide reductase (warfarin-sensitive)].
