(+)-pulegone reductase (EC 1.3.1.81) is an enzyme with systematic name (-)-menthone:NADP+ oxidoreductase. This enzyme catalises the following chemical reaction

(1) (-)-menthone + NADP+ (+)-pulegone + NADPH + H+ (2) (+)-isomenthone + NADP+ (+)-pulegone + NADPH + H+

NADH cannot replace NADPH as reductant.
