Reaction: NADPH + NAD+ = NADP+ + NADH
Other name(s): pyridine nucleotide transhydrogenase; transhydrogenase; NAD(P)+ transhydrogenase; nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (phosphate) transhydrogenase; NAD+ transhydrogenase; NADH transhydrogenase; nicotinamide nucleotide transhydrogenase; NADPH-NAD+ transhydrogenase; pyridine nucleotide transferase; NADPH-NAD+ oxidoreductase; NADH-NADP+-transhydrogenase; NADPH:NAD+ transhydrogenase; H+-Thase; non-energy-linked transhydrogenase; NADPH:NAD+ oxidoreductase (B-specific); NAD(P)+ transhydrogenase (B-specific)
Systematic name: NADPH:NAD+ oxidoreductase (Si-specific)
Comments: The enzyme from Azotobacter vinelandii is a flavoprotein (FAD). It is Si-specific with respect to both NAD+ and NADP+. Also acts on deamino coenzymes [cf. EC 126.96.36.199 NAD(P)+ transhydrogenase (Re/Si-specific)].
