Benzaldehyde dehydrogenase (NAD+)


Benzaldehyde dehydrogenase (NAD+)

In enzymology, a benzaldehyde dehydrogenase (NAD+) (EC number|1.2.1.28) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

:benzaldehyde + NAD+ + H2O ightleftharpoons benzoate + NADH + 2 H+

The 3 substrates of this enzyme are benzaldehyde, NAD+, and H2O, whereas its 3 products are benzoate, NADH, and H+.

This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on the aldehyde or oxo group of donor with NAD+ or NADP+ as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is benzaldehyde:NAD+ oxidoreductase. Other names in common use include benzaldehyde (NAD+) dehydrogenase, and benzaldehyde dehydrogenase (NAD+). This enzyme participates in benzoate degradation via hydroxylation and toluene and xylene degradation.
