Accepted name: 2-dehydropantolactone reductase (Re-specific)
Reaction: (R)-pantolactone + NADP+ = 2-dehydropantolactone + NADPH + H+
Other name(s): 2-oxopantoyl lactone reductase; ketopantoyl lactone reductase; 2-ketopantoyl lactone reductase; 2-dehydropantoyl-lactone reductase (A-specific); (R)-pantolactone:NADP+ oxidoreductase (A-specific); 2-dehydropantolactone reductase (A-specific)
Systematic name: (R)-pantolactone:NADP+ oxidoreductase (Re-specific)
Comments: The yeast enzyme differs from that from Escherichia coli [EC 2-dehydropantolactone reductase (Si-specific)], which is specific for the Si-face of NADP+, and in receptor requirements from EC 3-hydroxycyclohexanone dehydrogenase.
