Name
alkan-1-ol dehydrogenase (acceptor);
polyethylene glycol dehydrogenase;
alkan-1-ol:(acceptor) oxidoreductase
Class
Oxidoreductases;
Acting on the CH-OH group of donors;
With other, unknown, acceptors
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
alkan-1-ol:acceptor oxidoreductase
Reaction(IUBMB)
primary alcohol + acceptor = aldehyde + reduced acceptor [RN:R00639]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
primary alcohol [CPD:C00226];
acceptor [CPD:C00028]
Product
aldehyde [CPD:C00071];
reduced acceptor [CPD:C00030]
Comment
A quinoprotein. Acts on C3-C16 linear-chain saturated primary alcohols, C4-C7 aldehydes and on non-ionic surfactants containing polyethylene glycol residues, such as Tween 40 and 60, but not on methanol and only very slowly on ethanol. 2,6-Dichloroindophenol can act as acceptor. cf. EC 1.1.99.8 alcohol dehydrogenase (acceptor).
History
EC 1.1.99.20 created 1989
