1. NADP-dependent aliphatic alcohol dehydrogenases had been previously identified in various strains of Acinetobacter calcoaceticus, including A. calcoaceticus NCIB 8250 and Acinetobacter sp. HO1-N. During the course of this study similar enzymes were identified in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae D273-10B and in all of the other Gram negative and Gram positive eubacteria and yeasts that were examined. This thesis is chiefly concerned with purification and characterisation of these enzymes in A. calcoaceticus and S. cerevisiae and with studies on the physiological role of the enzyme of A. calcoaceticus.
