- 5,6-dihydrouracil + NAD+ uracil + NADH + H+
This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on the CH-CH group of donor with NAD+ or NADP+ as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is 5,6-dihydrouracil:NAD+ oxidoreductase. Other names in common use include dehydrogenase, dihydrouracil, dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase, dihydrothymine dehydrogenase, pyrimidine reductase, thymine reductase, uracil reductase, and dihydrouracil dehydrogenase (NAD+). This enzyme participates in 3 metabolic pathways: pyrimidine metabolism, beta-alanine metabolism, and pantothenate and coa biosynthesis.
