ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
sulfoacetaldehyde reductase (NADPH).
Reaction catalysed
2-hydroxyethane-1-sulfonate + NADP(+) <=> H(+) + NADPH + sulfoacetaldehyde
  • Catalyzes the reaction only in the opposite direction.
  • Involved in taurine degradation.
  • The bacterium Chromohalobacter salexigens strain DSM 3043 possesses two enzymes that catalyze this reaction, a constitutive enzyme (encoded by isfD2) and an inducible enzyme (encoded by isfD).
  • The latter is induced by taurine, and is responsible for most of the activity observed in taurine-grown cells.
  • Cf. EC 1.1.1.-, sulfoacetaldehyde reductase (NADH).
