EC 1.18.1.6     
Accepted name: adrenodoxin-NADP+ reductase
Reaction: 2 reduced adrenodoxin + NADP+ + H+ = 2 oxidized adrenodoxin + NADPH
Other name(s): adrenodoxin reductase; nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate-adrenodoxin reductase; AdR; NADPH:adrenal ferredoxin oxidoreductase; NADPH-adrenodoxin reductase
Systematic name: reduced adrenodoxin:NADP+ oxidoreductase
Comments: A flavoprotein (FAD). The enzyme, which transfers electrons from NADPH to adrenodoxin molecules, is the first component of the mitochondrial cytochrome P-450 electron transfer systems, and is involved in the biosynthesis of all steroid hormones.
