Accepted name: sulfoacetaldehyde reductase (NADH)
Reaction: isethionate + NAD+ = 2-sulfoacetaldehyde + NADH + H+
Glossary: isethionate = 2-hydroxyethanesulfonate
2-sulfoacetaldehyde = 2-oxoethanesulfonate
Other name(s): sarD (gene name); tauF (gene name); sqwF (gene name); BkTauF
Systematic name: isethionate:NAD+ oxidoreductase
Comments: The enzymes from the bacteria Bilophila wadsworthia and Clostridium sp. MSTE9 catalyse the reaction only in the reduction direction. In the bacterium Bifidobacterium kashiwanohense the optimal reaction pH for sulfoacetaldehyde reduction is 7.5, while that for isethionate oxidation is 10.0. cf. EC, sulfoacetaldehyde reductase (NADPH).
