Accepted name: thyroxine 5-deiodinase
Reaction: 3,3′,5′-triiodo-L-thyronine + iodide + acceptor + H+ = L-thyroxine + reduced acceptor
Other name(s): diiodothyronine 5′-deiodinase (ambiguous); iodothyronine 5-deiodinase; iodothyronine inner ring monodeiodinase; type III iodothyronine deiodinase
Systematic name: 3,3′,5′-triiodo-L-thyronine,iodide:acceptor oxidoreductase (iodinating)
Comments: The enzyme activity has only been demonstrated in the direction of 5-deiodination. This removal of the 5-iodine, i.e. from the inner ring, largely inactivates the hormone thyroxine.
