The transformation of the aloehydes to the corresponding alcohols is catalyzed by aldehyde reductases or alcohol dehydrogenases. • 1972; Turner and Tipton, 1972). One of these is NADHdependent and the other is NADPH-linked, but only the latter enzyme is able to reduce the catecholaldehydes. It is inhibited by barbiturates, hydantoins, phenothiazines, and oxazolidinediones.
