ENZYME entry: EC 1.1.5.7

Accepted Name
Cyclic alcohol dehydrogenase (quinone).
Alternative Name(s)
Cyclic alcohol dehydrogenase.
MCAD.
Reaction catalysed
A cyclic alcohol + a quinone <=> a cyclic ketone + a quinol
Comment(s)
  • This enzyme oxidizes a wide variety of cyclic alcohols.
  • Some minor enzyme activity is found with aliphatic secondary alcohols and sugar alcohols, but not primary alcohols.
  • The enzyme is unable to catalyze the reverse reaction of cyclic ketones or aldehydes to cyclic alcohols.
  • This enzyme differs from EC 1.1.5.5, which shows activity with ethanol.
