None.

Description

The acetaldehyde dehydrogenase family (EC:1.2.1.10) of bacterial enzymes catalyse the formation of acetyl-CoA from acetaldehyde in the 3-hydroxyphenylpropinoate degradation pathway. It occurs as a late step in the meta-cleavage pathways of a variety of compounds, including catechol, biphenyl, toluene, salicylate [PMID: 1732207].

Members of this entry heterodimerise with members of IPR000891 to form a bifunctional aldolase-dehydrogenase [PMID: 12764229].

Members of this protein family are acetaldehyde dehydrogenase (acetylating), EC:1.2.1.10. This enzyme oxidizes acetaldehyde, using NAD(+), and attaches coenzyme A (CoA), yielding acetyl-CoA., etc.
