At equilibrium, water addition to the 5,6 double bond of NADH was observed to favor the hydrate by a factor of approximately 100. Hydration generates two epimers of NADHX (beta-6-hydroxy-1,4,5,6-tetrahydronicotinamide adenine dinucleotide). Only the 6S epimer of the hydrate was found to serve as a true substrate for an ATP-dependent dehydratase from yeast that regenerates NADH. Yet enzymatic conversion of both epimers of the hydrate to NADH was found to proceed essentially to completion in the presence of ATP and dehydratase. This is explained by the observed ability of the epimers to undergo rapid spontaneous equilibration, so that it is unnecessary to postulate a lack of stereospecificity in the dehydratase.
