Accepted name: NADH:ubiquinone reductase (non-electrogenic)
Reaction: NADH + H+ + ubiquinone = NAD+ + ubiquinol
Other name(s): ubiquinone reductase (ambiguous); coenzyme Q reductase (ambiguous); dihydronicotinamide adenine dinucleotide-coenzyme Q reductase (ambiguous); DPNH-coenzyme Q reductase (ambiguous); DPNH-ubiquinone reductase (ambiguous); NADH-coenzyme Q oxidoreductase (ambiguous); NADH-coenzyme Q reductase (ambiguous); NADH-CoQ oxidoreductase (ambiguous); NADH-CoQ reductase (ambiguous); NADH-ubiquinone reductase (ambiguous); NADH-ubiquinone oxidoreductase (ambiguous); reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide-coenzyme Q reductase (ambiguous); NADH-Q6 oxidoreductase (ambiguous); NADH2 dehydrogenase (ubiquinone) (ambiguous)
Systematic name: NADH:ubiquinone oxidoreductase
Comments: A flavoprotein (FAD). Occurs in mitochondria of yeast and plants, and in aerobic bacteria. Has low activity with NADPH.
