Alcohol dehydrogenase, N-terminal (IPR013154)

Short name: ADH_N

Domain relationships

  • GroES-like (IPR011032)
    • Alcohol dehydrogenase, N-terminal (IPR013154)


This is the catalytic domain of alcohol dehydrogenases (EC: Many of them contain an inserted zinc binding domain. This domain has a GroES-like structure; a name derived from the superfamily of proteins with a GroES fold. Proteins with a GroES fold structure have a highly conserved hydrophobic core and a glycyl-aspartate dipeptide which is thought to maintain the fold [PMID: 10556240, PMID: 8804825].
