- in the reverse direction, (S)-usnate is reduced by NADH with cleavage of the ether bond to form a 7-hydroxy group
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 reduced-(S)-usnate:NAD+ oxidoreductase (ether-bond-forming). This enzyme is also called L-usnic acid dehydrogenase.
