enzymology, a 3-dehydrosphinganine reductase (EC number|220.127.116.11) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:sphinganine + NADP+ 3-dehydrosphinganine + NADPH + 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 D-erythro-dihydrosphingosine:NADP+ 3-oxidoreductase. Other names in common use include D-3-dehydrosphinganine reductase, D-3-oxosphinganine reductase, DSR, 3-oxosphinganine reductase, 3-oxosphinganine:NADPH oxidoreductase, and D-3-oxosphinganine:B-NADPH oxidoreductase. This enzyme participates in sphingolipid metabolism.
CAS registry numberfor this enzyme class is CAS registry|37250-36-5."
