Accepted name: 1,5-anhydro-D-fructose reductase
Reaction: 1,5-anhydro-D-glucitol + NADP+ = 1,5-anhydro-D-fructose + NADPH + H+
Systematic name: 1,5-anhydro-D-glucitol:NADP+ oxidoreductase
Comments: Also reduces pyridine-3-aldehyde and 2,3-butanedione. Acetaldehyde, 2-dehydroglucose (glucosone) and glucuronate are poor substrates, but there is no detectable action on glucose, mannose and fructose.
