Glossary: sulfoquinovose = 6-deoxy-6-sulfo-D-glucopyranose

Systematic name: 6-deoxy-6-sulfo-D-glucopyranose:NAD+ 1-oxidoreductase

Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Pseudomonas putida SQ1, participates in a sulfoquinovose degradation pathway. Activity with NADP+ is only 4% of that with NAD+.
