IUBMB Comments

The enzyme takes part in a D-galacturonate degradation pathway in the fungi Aspergillus niger and Trichoderma reesei (Hypocrea jecorina). It has equal activity with D- and L-glyceraldehyde, and can also reduce glyoxal and methylglyoxal. The reaction is only observed in the direction of glyceraldehyde reduction.

The expected taxonomic range for this enzyme is: Eukaryota, Bacteria

Synonyms
nadp-dependent glycerol dehydrogenase, more
