Accepted name: L-rhamnose 1-dehydrogenase [NAD(P)+]
Reaction: L-rhamnose + NAD(P)+ = L-rhamnono-1,4-lactone + NAD(P)H + H+
Systematic name: L-rhamnose:NAD(P)+ 1-oxidoreductase
Comments: The enzyme, which occurs in the bacteria Azotobacter vinelandii and Sphingomonas sp. SKA58, is part of the non-phosphorylative degradation pathway for L-rhamnose. The enzyme differs in cofactor specificity from EC, L-rhamnose 1-dehydrogenase, which is specific for NAD+ and EC, L-rhamnose 1-dehydrogenase (NADP+).
