Alcohol dehydrogenase activity in the human tissues.


Total and specific alcohol dehydrogenase activity has been compared in homogenates of 19 different types of human tissues from different sources. ADH activities were detected in tissues which have not been tested yet, e.g., thyroid gland, adrenal gland, fat tissue, skin tissue, peritoneal membrane, breast tissue, duodenum, and gall bladder. Healthy and pathological human tissue differ in their ADH activity. The percentage of the total activity has been estimated in each tested organ in relation to the total activity of the whole body.
