oxidoreductase

 [ok″sĭ-do-re-duk´tās]
a class of enzymes that catalyze the reversible transfer of electrons from one substance to another (oxidation-reduction, or redox reaction).

ox·i·do·re·duc·tase

(ok'si-dō-rē-dŭk'tās),
An enzyme catalyzing an oxidation-reduction reaction. Trivial names for oxidoreductases include dehydrogenase, reductase, oxidase (where O2 is the H acceptor), oxygenase (where O2 is incorporated into the substrate), peroxidase (H2O2 is the acceptor; catalase is an exception), and hydroxylase (coupled oxidation of two donors).
See also: oxidase.

oxidoreductase

/ox·i·do·re·duc·tase/ (ok″sĭ-do-re-duk´tās) any of a class of enzymes that catalyze the reversible transfer of electrons from a substrate that becomes oxidized to one that becomes reduced (oxidation-reduction, or redox reaction).

n.
An enzyme that catalyzes an oxidation-reduction reaction.

oxidoreductase

[ok′sidō′riduk′tās]
an enzyme that catalyzes a reaction in which one substance is oxidized while another is reduced. An example is alcohol dehydrogenase.

ox·i·do·re·duc·tase

(ok'si-dō-rĕ-dŭk'tās)
An enzyme (EC class 1) catalyzing an oxidation-reduction reaction. Trivial names for oxidoreductases include dehydrogenase, reductase, oxidase, oxygenase, peroxidase, and hydroxylase.
