Enzyme Commission Primary Name: alcohol dehydrogenase (azurin)

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: type II quinoprotein alcohol dehydrogenase, quinohaemoprotein ethanol dehydrogenase, QHEDH, ADHIIB

Taxonomic Range: Bacteria

Enzyme Commission Summary:
A soluble, periplasmic PQQ-containing quinohaemoprotein. Also contains a single haem c. Occurs in Comamonas and Pseudomonas. Does not require an amine activator. Oxidises a wide range of primary and secondary alcohols, and also aldehydes and large substrates such as sterols; methanol is not a substrate. Usually assayed with phenazine methosulphate or ferricyanide. Like all other quinoprotein alcohol dehydrogenases it has an 8-bladed 'propeller' structure, a calcium ion bound to the PQQ in the active site and an unusual disulphide ring structure in close proximity to the PQQ.
