Reaction: D-arabitol 1-phosphate + NAD+ = D-xylulose 5-phosphate + NADH + H+
Other name(s): APDH; D-arabitol 1-phosphate dehydrogenase; D-arabitol 5-phosphate dehydrogenase
Systematic name: D-arabitol-phosphate:NAD+ oxidoreductase
Comments: This enzyme participates in arabitol catabolism. The enzyme also converts D-arabitol 5-phosphate to D-ribulose 5-phosphate at a lower rate .
