IUBMB Comments
A flavoprotein containing both FMN and FAD. This enzyme catalyses the transfer of electrons from NADPH, an obligatory two-electron donor, to microsomal P-450 monooxygenases (e.g. EC 1.14.14.1, unspecific monooxygenase) by stabilizing the one-electron reduced form of the flavin cofactors FAD and FMN. It also reduces cytochrome b5 and cytochrome c. The number n in the equation is 1 if the hemoprotein undergoes a 2-electron reduction, and is 2 if it undergoes a 1-electron reduction.
