Accepted name: phosphonoacetaldehyde reductase (NADH)
Reaction: 2-hydroxyethylphosphonate + NAD+ = phosphonoacetaldehyde + NADH + H+

Other name(s): PhpC
Systematic name: 2-hydroxyethylphosphonate:NAD+ oxidoreductase
Comments: The enzyme from Streptomyces viridochromogenes catalyses a step in the biosynthesis of phosphinothricin tripeptide, the reduction of phosphonoacetaldehyde to 2-hydroxyethylphosphonate. The preferred cofactor is NADH, lower activity with NADPH [1].
