Accepted name: ureidoglycolate dehydrogenase (NAD+)
Reaction: (S)-ureidoglycolate + NAD+ = N-carbamoyl-2-oxoglycine + NADH + H+
Systematic name: (S)-ureidoglycolate:NAD+ oxidoreductase
Comments: Involved in catabolism of purines. The enzyme from the bacterium Escherichia coli is specific for NAD+ [2]. cf. EC, ureidoglycolate dehydrogenase [NAD(P)+].
