Metabolism of Dowanol EB (ethylene glycol mono-n-butyl ether) was evaluated in vitro with an equine liver alcohol dehydrogenase assay obtained from the Sigma Chemical Company. The Vmax, Km, and Vmax/Km were 4.06, 1.18X10E-3, and 3.50, respectively. The authors concluded that alcohol dehydrogenase has a high affinity for the test compound, indicating that the test compound is probably metabolized to a significant extent by this enzyme in vivo.
