Degradation of acetaldehyde produced by the nonalcohol dehydrogenase pathway.

Abstract

Acetaldehyde (Ac-CHO) is produced via the oxidation of ethanol by two different pathways; alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) and non-ADH systems. However, degradation of Ac-CHO in the liver, especially with respect to the relative amounts produced by the two pathways, remains unclear. In order to clarify the metabolic fates of Ac-CHO produced by the two pathways… (More)
