In enzymology, a lactaldehyde dehydrogenase (EC 18.104.22.168) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction: (S)-lactaldehyde + NAD+ + H2O ↔ (S)-lactate + NADH + 2 H+. The 3 substrates of this enzyme are (S)-lactaldehyde, NAD+, and H2O, whereas its 3 products are (S)-lactate, NADH, and H+. This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on the aldehyde or oxo group of donor with NAD+ or NADP+ as acceptor.
