Accepted name: D-xylose 1-dehydrogenase (NADP+, D-xylono-1,4-lactone-forming)
Reaction: D-xylose + NADP+ = D-xylono-1,4-lactone + NADPH + H+
Other name(s): xacA (gene name); xdh (gene name)
Systematic name: D-xylose:NADP+ 1-oxidoreductase (D-xylono-1,4-lactone-forming)
Comments: The enzyme, which participates in the degradation of D-xylose, has been characterized from several halophilic archaeal species. cf. EC, D-xylose 1-dehydrogenase (NADP+, D-xylono-1,5-lactone-forming).
