Oxidoreductases .
Dehydrogenase .
Oxidase .
Reductase .
Dehydrogenases .
Oxidases .
Reductases .
The class of all enzymes catalyzing oxidoreduction reactions. The substrate that is oxidized is regarded as a hydrogen donor. The systematic name is based on donor:acceptor oxidoreductase. The recommended name will be dehydrogenase, wherever this is possible; as an alternative, reductase can be used. Oxidase is only used in cases where O2 is the acceptor. (Enzyme Nomenclature, 1992, p9) .

Oxidoreductases, Alcohol .
Reductases, Carbonyl .
Reductases, Ketone .
A subclass of enzymes which includes all dehydrogenases acting on primary and secondary alcohols as well as hemiacetals. They are further classified according to the acceptor which can be NAD+ or NADP+ (subclass 1.1.1), cytochrome (1.1.2), oxygen (1.1.3), quinone (1.1.5), or another acceptor (1.1.99). .

Ribonucleoside Diphosphate Reductase .
UDP Reductase .
Diphosphate Reductase, Ribonucleoside .
Reductase, Ribonucleoside Diphosphate .
Reductase, UDP .
An enzyme of the oxidoreductase class that catalyzes the formation of 2'-deoxyribonucleotides from the corresponding ribonucleotides using NADPH as the ultimate electron donor. The deoxyribonucleoside diphosphates are used in DNA synthesis. (From Dorland, 27th ed) EC 1.17.4.1. .
