Reaction catalysed
An (R)-2-hydroxcarboxylate + NAD(+) <=> a 2-oxocarboxylate + NADH
Comment(s)
  • The enzymes, characterized from bacteria (Peptoclostridium difficile, Enterococcus faecalis and from lactic acid bacteria) prefer substrates with a main chain of 5 carbons (such as 4-methyl-2- oxopentanoate) to those with a shorter chain.
  • It also utilizes phenylpyruvate.
  • The enzyme from the halophilic archaeon Haloferax mediterranei prefers substrates with a main chain of 3-4 carbons (pyruvate and 2-oxobutanoate).
  • Cf. EC 1.1.1.272.
