pyrroline carboxylate reductases

(Science: enzyme) A group of enzymes that catalyze the reduction of 1-pyrroline carboxylate to proline in the presence of NAD(p)h. Includes both the 2-oxidoreductase (ec 1.5.1.1) and the 5-oxidoreductase (ec 1.5.1.2). The former also reduces 1-piperidine-2-carboxylate to pipecolate and the latter also reduces 1-pyrroline-3-hydroxy-5-carboxylate to hydroxyproline.

Registry number: EC 1.5.1.-
