Carboxylic acid reductase (CAR)

Short Description:

About Carboxylic acid reductase

ES-CAR (Carboxylic acid reductase): catalyzes the reduction of carboxyl group to aldehyde group. In the catalytic process, ATP activation and coenzyme NADPH are required as hydrogen transporters. There are 2 kinds of CAR enzyme products (Number as ES-CAR101~ ES-CAR-102) developed by SyncoZymes.

Catalytic reaction type:

Carboxylic acid reductase (CAR)1
