Alcohol dehydrogenase (EC:18.104.22.168) (ADH) catalyzes the reversible oxidation of
ethanol to acetaldehyde with the concomitant reduction of NAD:
- Zinc-containing 'long-chain' alcohol dehydrogenases.
- Insect-type, or 'short-chain' alcohol dehydrogenases.
- Iron-containing alcohol dehydrogenases.
In addition, this family includes an NADP-dependent quinone oxidoreductase encoded in bacteria by gene qor [PMID: 12624201, PMID: 14536026]. This type of enzymes are also found in yeast and mammals, where in some species, such as rodents, it has been recruited as an eye lens protein and is known as zeta-crystallin [PMID: 8486156]. The sequence of quinone oxidoreductase is distantly related to that other zinc-containing alcohol dehydrogenases and it lacks the zinc-ligand residues. The torpedo fish and mammalian synaptic vesicle membrane protein vat-1 is related to qor.
