A flavoprotein. Not identical with EC 22.214.171.124 (cystine reductase), EC 126.96.36.199 (glutathione-disulfide reductase) or EC 188.8.131.52 (bis-γ-glutamylcystine reductase). The enzyme from the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus has a strong preference for NADPH , while the bacterium Bacillus megaterium contains both NADH and NADPH-dependent enzymes .
