This study was undertaken to identify the cytosolic 40-kDa zinc-containing alcohol dehydrogenases that oxidize all-trans-retinol and steroid alcohols in fetal tissues. Degenerate oligonucleotide primers were used to amplify by polymerase chain reaction 500-base pair fragments of alcohol dehydrogenase cDNAs from chick embryo limb buds and heart. cDNA fragments that encode an unknown putative alcohol dehydrogenase as well as the class III alcohol dehydrogenase were identified. The new cDNA… CONTINUE READING
