Dehydrogenases do not show enzymatic activity if the microbial cells are dead, and this happens when a soil sample is air-dried (Paul and Clark 1989).
The papers represent the latest research in aldehyde dehydrogenases (including such topics as unexpected encounters in simulations f the ALDH mechanism and detoxification of chloroacetaldehyde by human class-9 aldehyde dehydrogenase), alcohol dehydrogenases (including functional roles of alcohol dehydrogenases in human ethanol metabolism and the diversity of beta-hydroxyacid dehydrogenases in plants), carbonyl reductases (including life without aldose reductase, lead optimization in the design of aldose reductase inhibitors and characterizations of a number of test animal organs).
Studies realized on the activity and function of dehydrogenases in the epididymal duct suggested that they acted on the process of glycolysis, which played an important role in epididymal metabolism (Delhon & Lawzewitsch, 1994).
