Accepted name: galactitol 2-dehydrogenase (L-tagatose-forming)
Reaction: galactitol + NAD+ = L-tagatose + NADH + H+
Other name(s): GatDH
Systematic name: galactitol:NAD+ 2-oxidoreductase (L-tagatose-forming)
Comments: The enzyme, characterized in the bacterium Rhodobacter sphaeroides, has a wide subtrate specificity. In addition to galactitol, it primarily oxidizes D-threitol and xylitol, and in addition to L-tagatose, it primarily reduces L-erythrulose, D-ribulose and L-glyceraldehyde. It is specific for NAD+. The enzyme also shows activity with D-tagatose (cf. EC, galactitol 2-dehydrogenase).
