IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: D-arabitol-phosphate dehydrogenase

Reaction: D-arabinitol 1-phosphate + NAD+ = D-xylulose 5-phosphate + NADH + H+

Other name(s): APDH; D-arabitol 1-phosphate dehydrogenase; D-arabitol 5-phosphate dehydrogenase; D-arabinitol 1-phosphate dehydrogenase; D-arabinitol 5-phosphate dehydrogenase <

Systematic name: D-arabinitol-phosphate:NAD+ oxidoreductasep> Comments: This enzyme participates in arabinitol catabolism. The enzyme also converts D-arabinitol 5-phosphate to D-ribulose 5-phosphate at a lower rate [1].
