Accepted name: betaine-aldehyde dehydrogenase
Reaction: betaine aldehyde + NAD+ + H2O = betaine + NADH + 2 H+
Glossary: betaine = glycine betaine = N,N,N-trimethylglycine = N,N,N-trimethylammonioacetate
betaine aldehyde = N,N,N-trimethyl-2-oxoethylammonium
Other name(s): betaine aldehyde oxidase; BADH; betaine aldehyde dehydrogenase; BetB
Systematic name: betaine-aldehyde:NAD+ oxidoreductase
Comments: In many bacteria, plants and animals, the osmoprotectant betaine is synthesized in two steps: (1) choline to betaine aldehyde and (2) betaine aldehyde to betaine. This enzyme is involved in the second step and appears to be the same in plants, animals and bacteria. In contrast, different enzymes are involved in the first reaction. In plants, this reaction is catalysed by EC (choline monooxygenase), whereas in animals and many bacteria it is catalysed by either membrane-bound EC (choline dehydrogenase) or soluble EC (choline oxidase) [5]. In some bacteria, betaine is synthesized from glycine through the actions of EC (glycine/sarcosine N-methyltransferase) and EC (sarcosine/dimethylglycine N-methyltransferase).

Accepted name: propanal dehydrogenase (CoA-propanoylating)
Reaction: propanal + CoA + NAD+ = propanoyl-CoA + NADH + H+
Other name(s): BphJ
Systematic name: propanal:NAD+ oxidoreductase (CoA-propanoylating)
Comments: The enzyme forms a bifunctional complex with EC, 4-hydroxy-2-oxohexanoate aldolase, with a tight channel connecting the two subunits [1,2,3]. Also acts, more slowly, on glycolaldehyde and butanal. In Pseudomonas species the enzyme forms a bifunctional complex with EC, 4-hydroxy-2-oxovalerate aldolase. The enzymes from the bacteria Burkholderia xenovorans and Thermus thermophilus also perform the reaction of EC, acetaldehyde dehydrogenase (acetylating). NADP+ can replace NAD+ with a much slower rate [3].

Systematic name: L-glutamate γ-semialdehyde:NAD+ oxidoreductase
Comments: This enzyme catalyses the irreversible oxidation of glutamate-γ-semialdehyde to glutamate as part of the proline degradation pathway. (S)-1-pyrroline-5-carboxylate, the product of the first enzyme of the pathway (EC, proline dehydrogenase) is in spontaneous equilibrium with its tautomer L-glutamate γ-semialdehyde. In many bacterial species, both activities are carried out by a single bifunctional enzyme [3,4].The enzyme can also oxidize other 1-pyrrolines, e.g. 3-hydroxy-1-pyrroline-5-carboxylate is converted into 4-hydroxyglutamate and (R)-1-pyrroline-5-carboxylate is converted into D-glutamate. NADP+ can also act as acceptor, but with lower activity [5].
