Accepted name: spermidine dehydrogenase
Reaction: spermidine + acceptor + H2O = propane-1,3-diamine + 4-aminobutanal + reduced acceptor
Glossary: spermidine = N-(3-aminopropyl)butane-1,4-diamine
Other name(s): spermidine:(acceptor) oxidoreductase
Systematic name: spermidine:acceptor oxidoreductase
Comments: A flavohemoprotein (FAD). Ferricyanide, 2,6-dichloroindophenol and cytochrome c can act as acceptor. 4-Aminobutanal condenses non-enzymically to 1-pyrroline.
