alkan-1-ol dehydrogenase (acceptor);
polyethylene glycol dehydrogenase;
Acting on the CH-OH group of donors;
With unknown physiological acceptors
primary alcohol + acceptor = aldehyde + reduced acceptor [RN:
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
