Accepted name: pyruvate dehydrogenase (NADP+)
Reaction: pyruvate + CoA + NADP+ = acetyl-CoA + CO2 + NADPH
Other name(s): pyruvate dehydrogenase (NADP)
Systematic name: pyruvate:NADP+ 2-oxidoreductase (CoA-acetylating)
Comments: The Euglena enzyme can also use FAD or methyl viologen as acceptor, more slowly. The enzyme is inhibited by oxygen.
