Official Full Name
alcohol dehydrogenase 4 (class II), pi polypeptide
Background
This gene encodes class II alcohol dehydrogenase 4 pi subunit, which is a member of the alcohol dehydrogenase family. Members of this enzyme family metabolize a wide variety of substrates, including ethanol, retinol, other aliphatic alcohols, hydroxysteroids, and lipid peroxidation products. Class II alcohol dehydrogenase is a homodimer composed of 2 pi subunits. It exhibits a high activity for oxidation of long-chain aliphatic alcohols and aromatic alcohols and is less sensitive to pyrazole. This gene is localized to chromosome 4 in the cluster of alcohol dehydrogenase genes.
Synonyms
ADH4; alcohol dehydrogenase 4 (class II), pi polypeptide; alcohol dehydrogenase 4; ADH 2; aldehyde reductase; alcohol dehydrogenase class II pi chain; ADH-2
