VKORC1L1 (Vitamin K epoxide reductase complex subunit 1-like protein 1) in the endoplasmic reticulum catalyzes the reduction of MK4 epoxide to MK4, the active form of vitamin K. A physiological role for this reaction has not been established (Hammed et al. 2013; Tie et al. 2014; Westhofen et al. 2011).
