Other pathways of alcohol oxidation to acetaldehyde involve the enzyme catalase and the microsomal ethanol-oxidizing system (MEOS), whose key component is cytochrome P4502E1 (CYP2E1) (see Agarwal 2001).
In the oxidative pathway, ethanol can be converted to acetaldehyde through the action of alcohol dehydrogenase, the microsomal ethanol-oxidizing system, or catalase.
Instead, another metabolic pathway called the microsomal ethanol-oxidizing system (MEOS) (Lieber and DeCarli 1970), which also converts ethanol to acetaldehyde, plays a role in some of alcohol's adverse effects.
