This chapter presents an overview of the genetic aspects of alcohol metabolism. Alcohol is a widely encountered substance in natural environments and therefore, it is not surprising that systems capable of converting it from a toxin into a food are commonly encountered in species as widely separated as humans and fruit flies. Interest in individual differences in alcohol metabolism has pre-dated modern molecular genetic techniques, because of the long recognized impact that excessive… CONTINUE READING
