Accepted name: carboxylate reductase
Reaction: an aldehyde + acceptor + H
O = a carboxylate + reduced acceptor 2
Other name(s): aldehyde:(acceptor) oxidoreductase
Systematic name: aldehyde:acceptor oxidoreductase
Comments: A tungsten protein. Methylviologen can act as acceptor. In the reverse direction, non-activated acids are reduced by reduced viologens to aldehydes, but not to the corresponding alcohols.
