This enzyme belongs to the family of lyases, specifically the hydro-lyases, which cleave carbon-oxygen bonds. The systematic name of this enzyme class is (6S)-6-beta-hydroxy-1,4,5,6-tetrahydronicotinamide-adenine-dinucleot ide hydro-lyase (ATP-hydrolysing; NADH-forming). Other names in common use include reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide hydrate dehydratase, ATP-dependent H4NAD(P)+OH dehydratase, (6S)-beta-6-hydroxy-1,4,5,6-tetrahydronicotinamide-adenine-, and dinucleotide hydro-lyase (ATP-hydrolysing).
