The first two steps in xylose metabolism are catalyzed by NAD(P)H-dependent xylose reductase (XR) (EC and NAD(P)-dependent xylitol dehydrogenase (XDH) (EC, which lead to xylose->xylitol->xylulose conversion. Xylitol has high commercial value, due to its sweetening and anticariogenic properties, as well as several clinical applications.
