2-enoyl-CoA reductase; dehydrogenase, acyl coenzyme A (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate); enoyl coenzyme A reductase; crotonyl coenzyme A reductase; crotonyl-CoA reductase; acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (NADP+)
The liver enzyme acts on enoyl-CoA derivatives of carbon chain length 4 to 16, with optimum activity on 2-hexenoyl-CoA. In Escherichia coli, cis-specific and trans-specific enzymes exist [EC 188.8.131.52cis-2-enoyl-CoA reductase (NADPH) and EC 184.108.40.206trans-2-enoyl-CoA reductase (NADPH)].
