Other name(s): retinol saturase; RetSat; (13,14)-all-trans-retinol saturase; all-trans-retinol:all-trans-13,14-dihydroretinol saturase
Systematic name: all-trans-13,14-dihydroretinol:acceptor 13,14-oxidoreductase
Comments: The reaction is only known to occur in the opposite direction to that given above, with the enzyme being specific for all-trans-retinol as substrate. Neither all-trans-retinoic acid nor 9-cis, 11-cis or 13-cis-retinol isomers are substrates. May play a role in the metabolism of vitamin A.
