In enzymology, a leucoanthocyanidin reductase (EC (LAR, aka leucocyanidin reductase or LCR) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction..

(2R,3S)-catechin + NADP+ + H2O \rightleftharpoons 2,3-trans-3,4-cis-leucocyanidin + NADPH + H+

The 3 substrates of this enzyme are (2R,3S)-catechin, NADP+, and H2O, whereas its 3 products are 2,3-trans-3,4-cis-leucocyanidin, NADPH, and H+.

This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on CH or CH2 groups with NAD+ or NADP+ as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is (2R,3S)-catechin:NADP+ 4-oxidoreductase. This enzyme is also called leucocyanidin reductase. This enzyme participates in flavonoid biosynthesis..It acquired Berean Christian Stores in September 2013, which at the time had 17 locations in the United States,
primarily in California.Ohh you're gonna buy my bible! Oohhh!.. the name of his Imperial Majesty in the city of Vienna..Life and death. Space and time. Fate and chance. Theses are the forces of the universe. Tonight, ladies and gentlemen, I present to you a man who has unlocked these mysteries.. From the furthest corners of the world where the dark arts still hold Sway...
