Glossary: (+)-lariciresinol = 4-[(2S,3R,4R)-4-[(4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl)methyl]-3-(hydroxymethyl)oxolan-2-yl]-2-methoxyphenol
(–)-secoisolariciresinol = (2R,3R)-2,3-bis[(4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl)methyl]butane-1,4-diol
Other name(s): pinoresinol/lariciresinol reductase; pinoresinol-lariciresinol reductases; (+)-pinoresinol/(+)-lariciresinol; (+)-pinoresinol-(+)-lariciresinol reductase; PLR
Systematic name: (–)-secoisolariciresinol:NADP+ oxidoreductase
Comments: The reaction is catalysed in vivo in the opposite direction to that shown. A multifunctional enzyme that also reduces (+)-pinoresinol [EC 1.23.1.1, (+)-pinoresinol reductase]. Isolated from the plants Forsythia intermedia [1,2], Thuja plicata (western red cedar) [3], Linum perenne (perennial flax) [5] and Linum corymbulosum [6].
