Accepted name: sulcatone reductase
Reaction: sulcatol + NAD+ = sulcatone + NADH + H+
Glossary: sulcatone = 6-methylhept-5-en-2-one
sulcatol = 6-methylhept-5-en-2-ol
Systematic name: sulcatol:NAD+ oxidoreductase
Comments: Studies on the effects of growth-stage and nutrient supply on the stereochemistry of sulcatone reduction in Clostridia pasteurianum, C. tyrobutyricum and Lactobacillus brevis suggest that there may be at least two sulcatone reductases with different stereospecificities.
