Alcohol dehydrogenase is a group of dehydrogenase enzymes, a class of zinc enzymes, that catalyze the oxidation of primary and secondary alcohols and facilitate the interconversion of alcohols and aldehydes with the reduction of hydride anion to NAD+ to NADH, the release of a proton.
Alcohol dehydrogenase will be inhibited because it is the first step in the metabolism of both methanol and ethylene glycol. The patient has tachypnea which is abnormally rapid breathing. The patient also has anion gap metabolic acidosis which is the result of type I diabetes, chronic alcoholism, or undernutrition.
