Accepted name: tropinone reductase II
Reaction: pseudotropine + NADP+ = tropinone + NADPH + H+
For diagram of reaction, click here
Glossary: pseudotropine = ψ-tropine = 3β-hydroxytropane = tropan-3-exo-ol
Other name(s): tropinone (ψ-tropine-forming) reductase; pseudotropine forming tropinone reductase; tropinone reductase (ambiguous); TR-II
Systematic name: pseudotropine:NADP+ 3-oxidoreductase
Comments: This enzyme along with EC, tropine dehydrogenase, represents a branch point in tropane alkaloid metabolism [3]. Tropine (the product of EC is incorporated into hyoscyamine and scopolamine whereas pseudotropine (the product of EC is the first specific metabolite on the pathway to the calystegines [3]. Both enzymes are always found together in any given tropane-alkaloid-producing species, have a common substrate, tropinone, and are strictly stereospecific [2].
