Reaction: (2S)-[(R)-hydroxy(phenyl)methyl]succinyl-CoA + NAD+ = (S)-2-benzoylsuccinyl-CoA + NADH + H+
Other name(s): bbsCD (gene name)
Systematic name: (2S)-[(R)-hydroxy(phenyl)methyl]succinyl-CoA:NAD+ oxidoreductase
Comments: The enzyme, purified from the bacterium Thauera aromatica, is involved in an anaerobic toluene degradation pathway. It is specific for NAD+.
