Perillyl-alcohol dehydrogenase


Perillyl-alcohol dehydrogenase

In enzymology, a perillyl-alcohol dehydrogenase (EC number|1.1.1.144) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

:perillyl alcohol + NAD+ ightleftharpoons perillyl aldehyde + NADH + H+

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are perillyl alcohol and NAD+, whereas its 3 products are perillyl aldehyde, NADH, 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 perillyl-alcohol:NAD+ oxidoreductase. This enzyme is also called perillyl alcohol dehydrogenase. This enzyme participates in limonene and pinene degradation.
