Reaction: isopyridoxal + NAD+ = 5-pyridoxolactone + NADH + H+
Glossary: isopyridoxal = 5-hydroxy-4-(hydroxymethyl)-6-methylpyridine-3-carbaldehyde
5-pyridoxolactone = 7-hydroxy-6-methylfuro[3,4-c]pyridin-3(1H)-one
Systematic name: isopyridoxal:NAD+ oxidoreductase (5-pyridoxolactone-forming)
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Arthrobacter sp. Cr-7, participates in the degradation of pyridoxine. The enzyme also catalyses the activity of EC 188.8.131.52, isopyridoxal dehydrogenase (5-pyridoxate-forming).
