The first examples of (S)-2-hydroxyacid dehydrogenases catalyzing the transfer of the pro-4S hydrogen of NADH are found in the archaea.


Reduction of 2-oxoacids to the corresponding (S)-2-hydroxyacids is an important transformation in biochemistry. To date all (S)-2-hydroxyacid dehydrogenases belonging to the L-lactate/L-malate dehydrogenase family have been found to transfer the pro-4R hydrogen of either NADH or NADPH to C-2 of the 2-oxoacid substrates during their reduction. Here, we… (More)
