Enzyme Commission Primary Name: alcohol dehydrogenase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: aldehyde reductase, ADH, alcohol dehydrogenase (NAD), aliphatic alcohol dehydrogenase, ethanol dehydrogenase, NAD-dependent alcohol dehydrogenase, NAD-specific aromatic alcohol dehydrogenase, NADH-alcohol dehydrogenase, NADH-aldehyde dehydrogenase, primary alcohol dehydrogenase, yeast alcohol dehydrogenase
Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG'° in kcal/mol): 3.1017761 [Latendresse13]
Enzyme Commission Summary:
A zinc protein. Acts on primary or secondary alcohols or hemi-acetals with very broad specificity; however the enzyme oxidizes methanol much more poorly than ethanol. The animal, but not the yeast, enzyme acts also on cyclic secondary alcohols.
