An enzyme that catalyzes the oxidation of 2,3,4,5-tetrahydrodipicolinate to 2,3-dihydrodipicolinate using NAD(P)+ as a cofactor. It is found in BACTERIA and higher plants involved in the biosynthesis of DIAMINOPIMELIC ACID and LYSINE.
Also Known As:
Dihydrodipicolinic Acid Reductase; Acid Reductase, Dihydrodipicolinic; Reductase, Dihydrodipicolinate; Reductase, Dihydrodipicolinic Acid
