succinate dehydrogenase

Also found in: Dictionary, Acronyms, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.

suc·ci·nate de·hy·dro·gen·ase

a flavoenzyme that catalyzes the removal of hydrogen from succinic acid and converts it into fumaric acid; for example, succinate + FAD ⇄ fumarate + FADH2; this complex is a part of the tricarboxylic acid cycle.
