ADH was tested with Dodecanol (C12)

This yielded the following results:

This shows two things. That E.Coli is partly able to degrade Dodecanol on it's own. And that this activity is greatly increased (38.4%) with the addition of ADH. It is also clear that eventhough ADH is from a thermophilic organism it loses most of it's activity after heating. (Although this activity could also be attributed to the host organism lacking the proper post translational modifications.)
