Accepted name: 2-oxoaldehyde dehydrogenase (NADP+)
Reaction: a 2-oxoaldehyde + NADP+ + H2O = a 2-oxo carboxylate + NADPH + H+
Other name(s): α-ketoaldehyde dehydrogenase; methylglyoxal dehydrogenase; NADP+-linked α-ketoaldehyde dehydrogenase; 2-ketoaldehyde dehydrogenase; NADP+-dependent α-ketoaldehyde dehydrogenase
Systematic name: 2-oxoaldehyde:NADP+ 2-oxidoreductase
Comments: Not identical with EC 2-oxoaldehyde dehydrogenase (NAD+).
