Accepted name: FMN reductase (NADH)
Reaction: FMNH2 + NAD+ = FMN + NADH + H+

Other name(s): NADH-FMN reductase; NADH-dependent FMN reductase; NADH:FMN oxidoreductase; NADH:flavin oxidoreductase
Systematic name: FMNH2:NAD+ oxidoreductase
Comments: The enzyme often forms a two-component system with monooxygenases. Unlike EC, FMN reductase (NADPH), and EC, FMN reductase [NAD(P)H], this enzyme has a strong preference for NADH over NADPH, although some activity with the latter is observed [1,2]. While FMN is the preferred substrate, FAD can also be used with much lower activity [1,3].
