The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: ferredoxin—NADP+ reductase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: ferredoxin-nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate reductase, ferredoxin-NADP+ reductase, TPNH-ferredoxin reductase, ferredoxin-NADP+ oxidoreductase, NADP+:ferredoxin oxidoreductase, ferredoxin-TPN reductase, ferredoxin-NADP+-oxidoreductase, NADPH:ferredoxin oxidoreductase, ferredoxin-nicotinamide-adenine dinucleotide phosphate (oxidized) reductase

Taxonomic Range: Archaea, Viridiplantae, Bacteria

Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): -37.261536Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

A flavoprotein. Can also reduce flavodoxin.

Enzyme Commission Summary:
A flavoprotein (FAD). In chloroplasts and cyanobacteria the enzyme acts on plant-type [2Fe-2S] ferredoxins, but in other bacteria it can also reduce bacterial [4Fe-4S] ferredoxins and flavodoxin.
