PFAM accession number:PF00248
Interpro abstract (IPR023210):

The aldo-keto reductase family includes a number of related monomeric NADPH-dependent oxidoreductases, such as aldehyde reductase, aldose reductase, prostaglandin F synthase, xylose reductase, rho crystallin, and many others [ (PUBMED:2498333) ]. All possess a similar structure, with a beta-alpha-beta fold characteristic of nucleotide binding proteins [ (PUBMED:2105951) ]. The fold comprises a parallel beta-8/alpha-8-barrel, which contains a novel NADP-binding motif. The binding site is located in a large, deep, elliptical pocket in the C-terminal end of the beta sheet, the substrate being bound in an extended conformation. The hydrophobic nature of the pocket favours aromatic and apolar substrates over highly polar ones [ (PUBMED:1621098) ].

Binding of the NADPH coenzyme causes a massive conformational change, reorienting a loop, effectively locking the coenzyme in place. This binding is more similar to FAD- than to NAD(P)-binding oxidoreductases [ (PUBMED:1447221) ].

Some proteins of this entry contain a K+ ion channel beta chain regulatory domain; these are reported to have oxidoreductase activity [ (PUBMED:10884227) ].

This entry represents the NADP-dependent oxidoreductase domain found in these proteins.
