Alcohol Dehydrogenase Application Notes Alcohol dehydrogenase catalyzes the reaction: RCH2OH +NAD+ ? RCHO + NADH + H+ It facilitates the interconversion between alcohols and aldehydes or ketones with the reduction of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+ to NADH). In biotransformation, alcohol dehydrogenases are often used for the synthesis of enantiomerically pure stereoisomers of chiral alcohols.

Biochemical Physiological Actions : Yeast alcohol dehydrogenase (yADH) serves as an excellent model system for enzyme-catalyzed H transfer because unlike many other enzymes, the chemical step, oxidation of a primary alcohol to an aldehyde by NAD+, is rate-limiting with aromatic substrates.
CAS : # 9031-72-5
EC No : 232-870-4
Extinction Coefficient : E1%260= 12.6(lit.)
Format : Powder
Grade : 2× Crystallized
Isoelectric Point : 5.4(lit.)
MDL No : MFCD00081305
PPE : Eyeshields, Gloves, respirator filter
Source : Yeast
Specific Activity : =300 u/mg protein
Specificity : Yeast ADH which has a more narrow specificity than that of liver enzyme; accepts ethanol; is somewhat active on the straight chain primary alcohols; and acts to a very limited extent on certain secondary and branched chain alcohols. NADP does not serve as coenzyme.
Unit Definition : One unit will convert 1.0 µmole of NAD/min at 25°C.
