Alcohol dehydrogenase (NAD(P)+)


Alcohol dehydrogenase (NAD(P)+)

In enzymology, an alcohol dehydrogenase [NAD(P)+] (EC number|1.1.1.71) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

:an alcohol + NAD(P)+ ightleftharpoons an aldehyde + NAD(P)H + H+

The 3 substrates of this enzyme are alcohol, NAD+, and NADP+, whereas its 4 products are aldehyde, NADH, NADPH, and H+.

This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on the CH-OH group of donor with NAD+ or NADP+ as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is alcohol:NAD(P)+ oxidoreductase. Other names in common use include retinal reductase, aldehyde reductase (NADPH/NADH), and alcohol dehydrogenase [NAD(P)] . This enzyme participates in glycolysis and gluconeogenesis.
