succinate semialdehyde


succinate semialdehyde
An intermediate in the catabolism of γ-aminobutyrate.
- s. dehydrogenase an enzyme that catalyzes the reaction of s. and either NAD+ or NADP+ to form succinate and NADH (or NADPH); a deficiency of this enzyme is associated with 4-hydroxybutyric aciduria.
