IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: ATP-dependent NAD(P)H-hydrate dehydratase

Reaction: (1) ATP + (6S)-6β-hydroxy-1,4,5,6-tetrahydronicotinamide-adenine dinucleotide = ADP + phosphate + NADH
(2) ATP + (6S)-6β-hydroxy-1,4,5,6-tetrahydronicotinamide-adenine dinucleotide phosphate = ADP + phosphate + NADPH

Glossary: (6S)-6β-hydroxy-1,4,5,6-tetrahydronicotinamide-adenine dinucleotide = (S)-NADH-hydrate = (S)-NADHX
(6S)-6β-hydroxy-1,4,5,6-tetrahydronicotinamide-adenine dinucleotide phosphate = (S)-NADPH-hydrate = (S)-NADPHX

Other name(s): reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide hydrate dehydratase; ATP-dependent H4NAD(P)+OH dehydratase; (6S)-β-6-hydroxy-1,4,5,6-tetrahydronicotinamide-adenine-dinucleotide hydro-lyase(ATP-hydrolysing); (6S)-6-β-hydroxy-1,4,5,6-tetrahydronicotinamide-adenine-dinucleotide hydro-lyase (ATP-hydrolysing; NADH-forming)

Systematic name: (6S)-6β-hydroxy-1,4,5,6-tetrahydronicotinamide-adenine-dinucleotide hydro-lyase (ATP-hydrolysing; NADH-forming)

Comments: Acts equally well on hydrated NADH and hydrated NADPH. NAD(P)H spontaneously hydrates to both the (6S)- and (6R)- isomers, and these are interconverted by EC, NAD(P)H-hydrate epimerase, to a 60:40 ratio [4]. Hence EC together with EC can restore the mixture of hydrates into NAD(P)H [3,4]. The enzyme from eukaryotes has no activity with ADP, contrary to the enzyme from bacteria (cf. EC, ADP-dependent NAD(P)H-hydrate dehydratase) [4].
