Reaction: L-homoserine + NAD(P)+ = L-aspartate 4-semialdehyde + NAD(P)H + H+

Other name(s): HSDH; HSD
Systematic name: L-homoserine:NAD(P)+ oxidoreductase
Comments: The yeast enzyme acts most rapidly with NAD+; the Neurospora enzyme with NADP+. The enzyme from Escherichia coli is a multi-functional protein, which also catalyses the reaction of EC 188.8.131.52 (aspartate kinase).
