Other name(s): fRMsr; FRMsr; free met-R-(o) reductase; free-methionine (R)-S-oxide reductase
Systematic name: L-methionine:thioredoxin-disulfide S-oxidoreductase [L-methionine (R)-S-oxide-forming]
Comments: Requires NADPH. Unlike EC 18.104.22.168, peptide-methionine (R)-S-oxide reductase, this enzyme cannot use peptide-bound methionine (R)-S-oxide as a substrate . Differs from EC 22.214.171.124, L-methionine (S)-S-oxide in that L-methionine (S)-S-oxide is not a substrate.
