Accepted name: glyoxylate reductase
Reaction: glycolate + NAD+ = glyoxylate + NADH + H+
Other name(s): NADH-glyoxylate reductase; glyoxylic acid reductase; NADH-dependent glyoxylate reductase
Systematic name: glycolate:NAD+ oxidoreductase
Comments: Reduces glyoxylate to glycolate or hydroxypyruvate to D-glycerate.
