Accepted name: 1,2-dehydroreticulinium reductase (NADPH)
R)-reticuline + NADP = 1,2-dehydroreticulinium + NADPH + H + +
For diagram of thebaine biosynthesis,
Other name(s): 1,2-dehydroreticulinium ion reductase
Systematic name: (
R)-reticuline:NADP oxidoreductase +
Comments: Reduces the 1,2-dehydroreticulinium ion to (
R)-reticuline, which is a direct precursor of morphinan alkaloids in the poppy plant. The enzyme does not catalyse the reverse reaction to any significant extent under physiological conditions.
