The activities of yeast ADH I and ADH II towards long chain alcohols and diols were studied using rather unusual conditions (1.0 M Tris pH 8.75, approximately 0.3 mg/ml enzyme and [S]<<<K(m) ) where the alcohols are oxidised quantitatively in a first-order manner. Plots of the apparent first-order rate constant versus primary alcohol chain length show double peaks with similar values for ethanol and 1-decanol and relatively low values for 1-butanol through to 1-octanol. With the alpha,omega… CONTINUE READING
