Retinol Isomerase

In enzymology, a retinol isomerase (EC is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

all-trans-retinol 11-cis-retinol

Hence, this enzyme has one substrate, all-trans-retinol, and one product, 11-cis-retinol.

This enzyme belongs to the family of isomerases, specifically cis-trans isomerases. The systematic name of this enzyme class is all-trans-retinol 11-cis-trans-isomerase. This enzyme is also called all-trans-retinol isomerase. This enzyme participates in retinol metabolism.
