Accepted name: 2-(R)-hydroxypropyl-CoM dehydrogenase
Reaction: 2-(R)-hydroxypropyl-CoM + NAD+ = 2-oxopropyl-CoM + NADH + H+

Glossary: coenzyme M (CoM) = 2-mercaptoethanesulfonate
Other name(s): 2-(2-(R)-hydroxypropylthio)ethanesulfonate dehydrogenase
Systematic name: 2-[2-(R)-hydroxypropylthio]ethanesulfonate:NAD+ oxidoreductase
Comments: The enzyme is highly specific for (R)-2-hydroxyalkyl thioethers of CoM, in contrast to EC, 2-(S)-hydroxypropyl-CoM dehydrogenase, which is highly specific for the (S)-enantiomer. This enzyme forms component III of a four-component enzyme system {comprising EC (2-hydroxypropyl-CoM lyase; component I), EC [2-oxopropyl-CoM reductase (carboxylating); component II], EC [2-(R)-hydroxypropyl-CoM dehydrogenase; component III] and EC [2-(S)-hydroxypropyl-CoM dehydrogenase; component IV]} that is involved in epoxyalkane carboxylation in Xanthobacter sp. strain Py2.
