Isozymes of Alcohol Dehydrogenases
Thirty amino acid substitutions are known in eight sets of isozymes or mutants of alcohol dehydrogenases. The replacements are at different positions in the subunits and affect many regions of the protein chains, which is consistent with the variability in properties of isozyme pairs. Correlations with functional consequences, chemical modifications and sub-forms are summarized.
