Accepted name: phosphonate dehydrogenase
Reaction: phosphonate + NAD+ + H2O = phosphate + NADH + H+
Other name(s): NAD:phosphite oxidoreductase; phosphite dehydrogenase
Systematic name: phosphonate:NAD+ oxidoreductase
Comments: NADP+ is a poor substitute for NAD+ in the enzyme from Pseudomonas stutzeri WM88.
