Accepted name: dihydroorotate dehydrogenase (NADP
S)-dihydroorotate + NADP = orotate + NADPH + H + +
Other name(s): orotate reductase; dihydro-orotic dehydrogenase;
L-5,6-dihydro-orotate:NAD oxidoreductase; orotate reductase (NADPH) +
Systematic name: (
S)-dihydroorotate:NADP oxidoreductase +
Comments: Binds FMN and FAD . Other class 1 dihydroorotate dehydrogenases use either fumarate (
EC 22.214.171.124) or NAD ( + EC 126.96.36.199) as electron acceptor. The membrane bound class 2 dihydroorotate dehydrogenase ( EC 188.8.131.52) uses quinone as electron acceptor .
