Reaction: (R)-pantolactone + NADP+ = 2-dehydropantolactone + NADPH + H+
Other name(s): 2-oxopantoyl lactone reductase; 2-ketopantoyl lactone reductase; ketopantoyl lactone reductase; 2-dehydropantoyl-lactone reductase (B-specific); (R)-pantolactone:NADP+ oxidoreductase (B-specific); 2-dehydropantolactone reductase (B-specific)
Systematic name: (R)-pantolactone:NADP+ oxidoreductase (Si-specific)
Comments: The Escherichia coli enzyme differs from that from yeast [EC 18.104.22.168 2-dehydropantolactone reductase (Re-specific)], which is specific for the Re-face of NADP+, and in receptor requirements from EC 22.214.171.124 3-hydroxycyclohexanone dehydrogenase.
