BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
(S)-2-hydroxymethylglutarate:NAD+ oxidoreductase
Reaction(IUBMB)
(S)-2-hydroxymethylglutarate + NAD+ = 2-formylglutarate + NADH + H+ [RN:R07985]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
(S)-2-hydroxymethylglutarate;
NAD+ [CPD:C00003]
Product
2-formylglutarate [CPD:C16159];
NADH [CPD:C00004];
H+ [CPD:C00080]
Comment
NADP+ cannot replace NAD+. Forms part of the nicotinate-fermentation catabolism pathway in Eubacterium barkeri. Other enzymes involved in this pathway are EC 1.17.1.5 (nicotinate dehydrogenase), EC 1.3.7.1 (6-hydroxynicotinate reductase), EC 3.5.2.18 (enamidase), EC 5.4.99.4 (2-methyleneglutarate mutase), EC 5.3.3.6 (methylitaconate Delta-isomerase), EC 4.2.1.85 (dimethylmaleate hydratase) and EC 4.1.3.32 (2,3-dimethylmalate lyase).
