Accepted name: long-chain-fatty-acyl-CoA reductase
Reaction: a long-chain aldehyde + CoA + NADP+ = a long-chain acyl-CoA + NADPH + H+
Other name(s): acyl-CoA reductase; acyl coenzyme A reductase
Systematic name: long-chain-aldehyde:NADP+ oxidoreductase (acyl-CoA-forming)
Comments: Together with EC long-chain-fatty-acid—luciferin-component ligase, forms a fatty acid reductase system that produces the substrate of EC alkanal monooxygenase (FMN-linked), thus being part of the bacterial luciferase system.
