NADPH-dependent trans-2-enoyl-CoA reductase is distinct from the three other enoyl-CoA reductases in E. coli. The reductase may participate in the chain elongation or degradation of fatty acids. This reaction is similar to the acyl-CoA dehydrogenase reaction, the fadE gene product. There is no gene associated with this enzyme as yet. [Mizugaki82, Nishimaki84]
