Human stomach alcohol dehydrogenase: isoenzyme composition and catalytic properties

Alcoholism, Clinical and Experimental Research
J Hempel, R Pietruszko


Two isoenzymes of alcohol dehydrogenase have been purified from human stomach and characterized with regard to electrophoretic mobility and kinetic properties with ethanol, hexanol, and acetaldehyde. Both undergo a time-dependent formation of multiple electrophoretic bands; the total amount of alcohol dehydrogenase activity in an average human stomach is only about 0.2% of that of the liver.

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.

Here is the latest research on pontocerebellar hypoplasia.

Cell Atlas Along the Gut-Brain Axis

Profiling cells along the gut-brain axis at the single cell level will provide unique information for each cell type, a three-dimensional map of how cell types work together to form tissues, and insights into how changes in the map underlie health and disease of the GI system and its crosstalk with the brain.
