Zusammenfassung

Die Hemmung der Alkoholdehydrogenase aus Hefe durch Zigarettenrauch beruht auf verschiedenen Inaktivierungsmechanismen. Die Gasphase zeigt eine kompetitive Hemmung, die Partikelphase und der ganze Rauch eine gemischte Hemmung. Da die Hemmung durch den ganzen Rauch nicht der Summe der Hemmungen beider Phasen entspricht, ist anzunehmen, dass Wechselwirkungen zwischen den Inhibitoren und Antagonisten vorliegen.
