ENZYME entry: EC 1.1.1.272

Accepted Name
D-2-hydroxyacid dehydrogenase (NADP(+)).
Reaction catalysed
An (R)-2-hydroxycarboxylate + NADP(+) <=> a 2-oxocarboxylate + NADPH
Comment(s)
  • This enzyme, characterized from the halophilic archaeon Haloferax mediterranei and the mold Aspergillus oryzae, catalyzes a reversible stereospecific reduction of 2-oxocarboxylic acids into the corresponding D-2-hydroxycarboxylic acids.
  • The enzyme prefers substrates with a main chain of 5 carbons (such as 4-methyl-2-oxopentanoate) to those with a shorter chain, and can use NADH with much lower efficiency.
  • cf. EC 1.1.1.345.
