Synonyms: yjgB, AdhZ3
Ahr is a member of the zinc-containing medium-chain dehydrogenase/reductase family. The enzyme is a source of NADPH-dependent aldehyde reductase activity in the cell. Catalytic activity of the purified enzyme was measured with a variety of aldehyde substrates [Pick13].
Unpurified Ahr was previously shown to have acetaldehyde and isobutyraldehyde reductase activity, with a preference for the NADPH co-substrate. This activity contributes to the conversion of isobutyraldehyde to isobutanol in an engineered strain [Rodriguez12]. In a metabolically engineered strain, phenylacetaldehyde and 4-hydroxyphenylacetaldehyde are reduced to 2-phenylethanol and 2-(4-hydroxyphenyl)ethanol by the endogenous aldehyde reductases YqhD, Ahr, and YahK [Koma12].
Mutants that change the preference of the enzyme for the NADPH cosubstrate towards NADH have been constructed [Pick14].
The yjgB gene of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium is part of the RpoS regulon [IbanezRuiz00].

Enzymatic reaction of: aldehyde reductase
EC Number: 220.127.116.11
The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.
Reversibility of this reaction is unspecified.
Kinetic parameters for a range of substrates were measured in [Pick13]. The substrate specificity of the enzyme from E. coli BL21(DE3), which differs in a single amino acid from the K-12 enzyme, was characterized in [Akhtar13]; the enzyme primarily utilizes C4, C6 and C8 aldehydes. The initial rate of alcohol oxidation is two orders of magnitude lower than the initial rate of aldehyde reduction.
