Subunit composition of
NADPH quinone reductase = [MdaB]2
NADPH quinone reductase monomer = MdaB
The MdaB quinone reductase is specific for NADPH and is most active with quinone derivatives and ferricyanide as electron acceptors [Hayashi96]. In vitro, YgiN is able to reoxidize menadiol that has been reduced by MdaB quinone reductase; the two enzymes may form a quinone redox cycle. The biological role of a quinone redox cycle may be to maintain an intracellular pool of menadione and ubiquinone using a catalytic mechanism that avoids the formation of a semiquinone intermediate, and to act as a quinone buffer [Adams05].
Despite the different cofactor and cosubstrate requirements, it was later stated that MdaB is identical to NADH dehydrogenase (quinone) [Adams05], but no evidence was given. Unlike MdaB, NADH dehydrogenase (quinone) was shown to utilize NADH and to be FMN-dependent [Hayashi90]. Menadione specifically induces expression of the NADH- and FMN-dependent activity, while 2-methylene-4-butyrolactone (MBL) and other compounds containing a methide group induce expression of the NADPH-dependent MdaB activity [Hayashi96].
Overexpression of mdaB leads to increased resistance to the tumoricidal agent DMP 840 [Chatterjee95]. A strain adapted for growth in benzalkonium chloride overexpresses MdaB [Bore07]. An mdaB null mutant shows no change in sensitivity to menadione-induced oxidative stress [Adams06].

Enzymatic reaction of: NADPH quinone reductase
Synonyms: NADPH-specific quinone reductase, NADPH dehydrogenase (quinone), NADPH:(quinone-acceptor) oxidoreductase
EC Number: 126.96.36.199
The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the direction of enzyme catalysis.
The reaction is physiologically favored in the direction shown.
Amino-terminal sequence determination of the purified enzyme showed it to be the product of the mdaB gene. The enzyme can be purified in two forms which differ in FAD content and charge [Hayashi96].
pH(opt): 7 [Hayashi96]
