EC 1.8.1.13     
Accepted name: bis-γ-glutamylcystine reductase
Reaction: 2 γ-glutamylcysteine + NADP+ = bis-γ-glutamylcystine + NADPH + H+
Other name(s): NADPH2:bis-γ-glutamylcysteine oxidoreductase; GSR
Systematic name: γ-glutamylcysteine:NADP+ oxidoreductase
Comments: Contains FAD. The enzyme, which is found only in halobacteria, maintains the concentration of γ-glutamylcysteine, the major low molecular weight thiol in halobacteria. Not identical with EC 1.8.1.7 (glutathione-disulfide reductase) or EC 1.8.1.14 (CoA-disulfide reductase).
