MetaCyc Enzyme: citral dehydrogenase

Species: Penicillium digitatum ATCC 201167

Summary:
The subunit structure of this enzyme has not been reported. The gene encoding it has not been identified in this organism.

Citral is a mixture of the isomers geranial (trans-citral) and neral (cis-citral). Citral dehydrogenase activity in spore extracts was shown to convert geranial to its corresponding acid geranate in an NAD+-dependent manner [Wolken01].

Enzymatic reaction of: geranial dehydrogenase (citral dehydrogenase)

EC Number: 1.2.1.86

geranial + NAD+ + H2O <=> geranate + NADH + 2 H+

The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the direction in which it was curated.

This reaction is reversible.

In Pathways: geraniol and nerol degradation

Summary:
The enzyme could not utilize NADP+ as cofactor. Citral, a mixture of geranial and neral was used as substrate. No accululation of neric acid was observed during citral biotransformation [Wolken01].
