DESCRIPTION

Alcohol dehydrogenase plays a small metabolic role in humans but is a much more important contributor to the health and survivability of microorganisms such as yeast and bacteria. In humans ADH resides primarily in the liver where it detoxifies ethanol. Its role in microorganisms is more interesting as it is involved in anaerobic energy production, adaptability to toxic environments bioremediation. ADH generates NADH in the process of oxidizing alcohol, an important intermediate in energy production. AkrivisBio’s Alcohol Dehydrogenase Assay provides a simple, sensitive means of quantifying ADH activity in a variety of sample types with a lower limit of detection in the low microunit range.
