Enzymatic mechanism of low-activity mouse alcohol dehydrogenase 2.

Abstract

ADH2 is a member of one of the six classes of mammalian alcohol dehydrogenases, which catalyze the reversible oxidation of alcohols using NAD(+) as a cofactor. Within the ADH2 class, the rodent enzymes form a subgroup that exhibits low catalytic activity with all substrates that were examined, as compared to other groups, such as human ADH2. The low… (More)
