|Alcohol dehydrogenase (quinone).
|PQQ alcohol dehydrogenase.|
|PQQ-dependent alcohol dehydrogenase.|
|Pyrroloquinoline quinone-dependent alcohol dehydrogenase.|
|Quinoprotein alcohol dehydrogenase.|
|Type III ADH.|
|Ethanol + ubiquinone <=> acetaldehyde + ubiquinol|
- Only described in acetic acid bacteria where it is involved in acetic
- Associated with membrane.
- Electron acceptor is membrane ubiquinone.
- A model structure suggests that, like all other quinoprotein alcohol
dehydrogenases, the catalytic subunit 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; the
catalytic subunit also has a heme c in the C-terminal domain.
- The enzyme has two additional subunits, one of which contains three
molecules of heme c.
- It does not require amines for activation.
- It has a restricted substrate specificity, oxidizing a few primary
alcohols (C2 to C6), but not methanol, secondary alcohols and some
- It is assayed with phenazine methosulfate or with ferricyanide.
