Alcohol Dehydrogenases

Molecule 3D Structure Image



Alcohol Dehydrogenases are a group of dehydrogenase enzymes that occur in many organisms and facilitate the interconversion between alcohols and aldehydes or ketones with the reduction of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+ to NADH). The alcohol dehydrogenases comprise a group of several isozymes that catalyse the oxidation of primary and secondary alcohols to aldehydes and ketones, respectively, and also can catalyse the reverse reaction. Alcohol dehydrogenase is a dimer with a mass of 80 kDa. Alcohol dehydrogenase is also involved in the toxicity of other types of alcohol. Alcohol dehydrogenase activity varies between men and women, between young and old, and among populations from different areas of the world.
