Studies in the 1950's have shown that glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase slowly catalyzes the formation of NADHX from NADH [Rafter54]. The equilibrium of this hydration reaction is in favor (100/1) of the hydrated form [Acheson88], making the reaction virtually irreversible.
NADHX and NADPHX are inhibitors of several dehydrogenases [Prabhakar98] and it is thus important to eliminate them. Reconversion of NADHX to NADH is catalyzed by an ATP-dependent dehydratase [Yoshida75a, Marbaix11].
