Reaction: an acyl-[acyl-carrier protein] + NADP+ = a trans-2,3-dehydroacyl-[acyl-carrier protein] + NADPH + H+
Other name(s): acyl-ACP dehydrogenase; reductase, enoyl-[acyl carrier protein] (reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate); NADPH 2-enoyl Co A reductase; enoyl acyl-carrier-protein reductase; enoyl-ACP reductase; enoyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] reductase (NADPH2, B-specific)
Systematic name: acyl-[acyl-carrier protein]:NADP+ oxidoreductase (B-specific)
Comments: One of the activities of EC 220.127.116.11, fatty-acyl-CoA synthase, an enzyme found in yeasts (Ascomycota and the Basidiomycota). Catalyses the reduction of enoyl-acyl-[acyl-carrier protein] derivatives of carbon chain length from 4 to 16. The yeast enzyme is B-specific with respect to NADP+. cf. EC 18.104.22.168 enoyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] reductase (NADPH, A-specific) and EC 22.214.171.124, enoyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] reductase (NADH).
