The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

Mass balance status: Balance undetermined; a substrate lacks a chemical formula

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: cyclic alcohol dehydrogenase (quinone)

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: cyclic alcohol dehydrogenase, MCAD

Enzyme Commission Summary:
This enzyme oxidizes a wide variety of cyclic alcohols. Some minor enzyme activity is found with aliphatic secondary alcohols and sugar alcohols, but not primary alcohols. The enzyme is unable to catalyse the reverse reaction of cyclic ketones or aldehydes to cyclic alcohols. This enzyme differs from EC, alcohol dehydrogenase (quinone), which shows activity with ethanol [Moonmangmee01].
