NADP-Dependent shikimate dehydrogenae (SKDH, EC 22.214.171.124) was purified from <I>Gluconobacter oxydans</I> IFO 3244. SKDH showed a single protein band on native-PAGE accompanying enzyme activity. It required NADP exclusively and catalyzed only the shuttle reaction between shikimate and 3-dehydroshikimate. The optimum pH for shikimate oxidation and 3-dehydroshikimate reduction was found at pH 10 and 7 respectively. SKDH proved to be a useful catalyst for shikimate production from 3-dehydroshikimate.
