ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Aromatic 2-oxoacid reductase.
Alternative Name(s)
(R)-4-hydroxyphenyllactate dehydrogenase.
(R)-aromatic lactate dehydrogenase.
Indole-3-lactate dehydrogenase.
Indolelactate dehydrogenase.
Reaction catalysed
  • (R)-3-(phenyl)lactate + NAD(+) <=> 3-phenyl-2-oxopropanoate + NADH
  • (R)-3-(4-hydroxyphenyl)lactate + NAD(+) <=> 3-(4-hydroxyphenyl)pyruvate + NADH
  • (Indol-3-yl)lactate + NAD(+) <=> (indol-3-yl)pyruvate + NADH
  • The enzymes from anaerobic bacteria such as Clostridium sporogenes participate in the fermentation pathways of L-phenylalanine, L-tyrosine and L-tryptophan.
  • The enzyme from the yeast Candida maltosa has similar activity, but, unlike the bacterial enzyme, requires Mn(2+) and can also use NADPH with lower activity.
