IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
histidinol dehydrogenase
Other name:
L-histidinol dehydrogenase
Systematic name:
L-histidinol:NAD+ oxidoreductase



Also oxidizes L-histidinal. The Neurospora enzyme also catalyses the reactions of EC (phosphoribosyl-AMP cyclohydrolase) and EC (phosphoribosyl-ATP diphosphatase).
