In enzymology, a glyoxylate reductase (NADP+) (EC 184.108.40.206) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction
glycolate + NADP+
glyoxylate + NADPH + H+
Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are glycolate and NADP+, whereas its 3 products are glyoxylate, NADPH, and H+.
This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on the CH-OH group of donor with NAD+ or NADP+ as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is glycolate:NADP+ oxidoreductase. Other names in common use include NADPH-glyoxylate reductase, and glyoxylate reductase (NADP+). This enzyme participates in pyruvate metabolism and glyoxylate and dicarboxylate metabolism.
