In enzymology, a (S)-carnitine 3-dehydrogenase (EC is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

(S)-carnitine + NAD+ 3-dehydrocarnitine + NADH + H+

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are (S)-carnitine and NAD+, whereas its 3 products are 3-dehydrocarnitine, NADH, and H+.

This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on the CH-OH group of donor with NAD+ or NADP+ as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is (S)-carnitine:NAD+ oxidoreductase.
