Other name(s): succinate semialdehyde dehydrogenase (NAD+); succinic semialdehyde dehydrogenase (NAD+); succinyl semialdehyde dehydrogenase (NAD+); succinate semialdehyde:NAD+ oxidoreductase
Systematic name: succinate-semialdehyde:NAD+ oxidoreductase
Comments: This enzyme participates in the degradation of glutamate and 4-aminobutyrate. It is similar to EC 188.8.131.52 [succinate-semialdehyde dehydrogenase (NADP+)], and EC 184.108.40.206 [succinate-semialdehyde dehydrogenase (NAD(P)+)], but is specific for NAD+.
