Substrate specificity of nine NAD(+)-dependent alcohol dehydrogenases in Aspergillus nidulans.


In Aspergillus nidulans three alcohol dehydrogenases (ADHs) have been described. ADHI is induced by ethanol and is the physiological enzyme of ethanol utilization, ADHII has not been attributed a function but is repressed by ethanol. The ALCR regulatory protein acts positively to induce ADHI, and negatively in its control of ADHII. ADHIII is specifically… (More)
