Product Description

Alcohol Dehydrogenase

Application Notes

Alcohol dehydrogenase catalyzes the reaction: RCH2OH +NAD+ ↔ RCHO + NADH + H+ It facilitates the interconversion between alcohols and aldehydes or ketones with the reduction of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+ to NADH). In biotransformation, alcohol dehydrogenases are often used for the synthesis of enantiomerically pure stereoisomers of chiral alcohols.

Base Catalog Number 100161
Biochemical Physiological Actions Yeast alcohol dehydrogenase (yADH) serves as an excellent model system for enzyme-catalyzed H transfer because unlike many other enzymes, the chemical step, oxidation of a primary alcohol to an aldehyde by NAD+, is rate-limiting with aromatic substrates.

Source Yeast
Specific Activity ≥300 u/mg protein
Specificity Yeast ADH which has a more narrow specificity than that of liver enzyme; accepts ethanol; is somewhat active on the straight chain primary alcohols; and acts to a very limited extent on certain secondary and branched chain alcohols. NADP does not serve as coenzyme.
Unit Definition One unit will convert 1.0 µmole of NAD/min at 25°C.
