• NADPH
  • It is a NADPH-dependent enzyme catalyzing the conversion of 1-deoxy-D-xylulose-5-phosphate ( 7 , DXP) to methyl-D-erythritol 4-phosphate ( 8 , MEP). (utexas.edu)
  • Since NADPH is required by both thioredoxin reductase and glutathione reductase to reduce oxidized thioredoxin and glutathionine, 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase is believed to be involved in protecting cells from oxidative damage. (wikipedia.org)
