ENZYME entry: EC 1.1.2.7

Accepted Name
Methanol dehydrogenase (cytochrome c).
Alternative Name(s)
MDH.
Methanol dehydrogenase.
Reaction catalysed
A primary alcohol + 2 cytochrome c(L) <=> an aldehyde + 2 reduced cytochrome c(L) + 2 H(+)
Cofactor(s)
Pyrroloquinoline quinone.
Comment(s)
  • A periplasmic quinoprotein alcohol dehydrogenase that only occurs in methylotrophic bacteria.
  • It uses the novel specific cytochrome c(L) as acceptor.
  • Acts on a wide range of primary alcohols, including ethanol, duodecanol, chloroethanol, cinnamyl alcohol, and also formaldehyde.
  • Activity is stimulated by ammonia or methylamine.
  • It is usually assayed with phenazine methosulfate.
  • 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 disulfide ring structure in close proximity to the PQQ.
  • It differs from EC 1.1.2.8, alcohol dehydrogenase (cytochrome c), in having a high affinity for methanol and in having a second essential small subunit (no known function).
  • Formerly EC 1.1.99.8.
