Accepted name: aspartate dehydrogenase
Reaction: L-aspartate + H2O + NAD(P)+ = oxaloacetate + NH3 + NAD(P)H + H+ (overall reaction)
(1a) L-aspartate + NAD(P)+ = 2-iminosuccinate + NAD(P)H + H+
(1b) 2-iminosuccinate + H2O = oxaloacetate + NH3 (spontaneous)
Other name(s): AspDH; NAD-dependent aspartate dehydrogenase; NADH2-dependent aspartate dehydrogenase; NADP+-dependent aspartate dehydrogenase; nadX (gene name); L-aspartate:NAD(P)+ oxidoreductase (deaminating)
Systematic name: L-aspartate:NAD(P)+ oxidoreductase (2-iminosuccinate-forming)
Comments: The enzyme is strictly specific for L-aspartate as substrate. It produces the unstable compound 2-iminosuccinate, which, in the presence of water, hydrolyses spontaneously to form oxaloacetate. The enzyme from some archaea and thermophilic bacteria is likely to transfer 2-iminosuccinate directly to EC, quinolinate synthase, preventing its hydrolysis and enabling the de novo biosynthesis of NAD+.
