Sorbitol Dehydrogenase, also known as L-iditol 2-dehydrogenase, SORD or SORD1, is a 357 amino acid member of the zinc-containing alcohol dehydrogenase family. Widely expressed with highest expression in kidney and in the lens of the eye, Sorbitol Dehydrogenase enzymatically catalyzes the zinc-dependent interconversion of polyols, such as such as sorbitol and xylitol, to their respective ketoses. These reactions require NAD+ as an oxidizing agent and, together with Aldose Reductase, they comprise the sorbitol pathway that is involved in sugar production. Sorbitol Dehydrogenase deficiency leads to defects in this pathway and a subsequent accumulation of sorbitol within the cell, a condition that may be associated with diabetic complications such as cataracts and microvascular problems.
