Characterization of alcohol dehydrogenase in young soybean seedlings

Biochemical Genetics
R BrzezinskiJ P Thirion


Molecular properties of alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) were examined in young soybean seedlings. Soybean radicle tissue is ADH-rich. Enzyme specific activity decreases slowly with the development of roots and becomes almost undetectable when the first true leaves appear. Soybean ADH was not found to be inducible by flooding. 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) treatment increased ADH specific activity as much as 14-fold. Only one ADH isozyme was detected by isoelectric focusing. By DNA-DNA hydridization, soybean ADH genomic sequences were shown to be partly homologous to maize ADH1 cDNA. The presence of more than one Adh gene in soybean is discussed.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
