ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Polyvinyl alcohol dehydrogenase (cytochrome).
Alternative Name(s)
PVA dehydrogenase.
Reaction catalysed
Polyvinyl alcohol + ferricytochrome c <=> oxidized polyvinyl alcohol + ferrocytochrome c + H(+)
Pyrroloquinoline quinone.
  • The enzyme is involved in bacterial polyvinyl alcohol degradation.
  • Some Gram-negative bacteria degrade polyvinyl alcohol by importing it into the periplasmic space, where it is oxidized by polyvinyl alcohol dehydrogenase, an enzyme that is coupled to the respiratory chain via cytochrome c.
  • Formerly EC
