Technical Data
ADH5 (Alcohol Dehydrogenase Class-3, Alcohol Dehydrogenase Class-III, Alcohol Dehydrogenase 5, Alcohol Dehydrogenase Class chi Chain, S-(hydroxymethyl)glutathione Dehydrogenase, Glutathione-dependent Formaldehyde Dehydrogenase, GSH-FDH, FALDH, FDH, ADHX)
ADH5 is a member of the alcohol dehydrogenase family. Members of this family metabolize a wide variety of substrates, including ethanol, retinol, other aliphatic alcohols, hydroxysteroids, and lipid peroxidation products. This protein forms a homodimer. It has virtually no activity for ethanol oxidation, but exhibits high activity for oxidation of long-chain primary alcohols and for oxidation of S-hydroxymethyl-glutathione, a spontaneous adduct between formaldehyde and glutathione. This enzyme is an important component of cellular metabolism for the elimination of formaldehyde, a potent irritant and sensitizing agent that causes lacrymation, rhinitis, pharyngitis, and contact dermatitis.

Suitable for use in Peptide ELISA, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
