Junior biology (PreMed) majors Emily Ogle (Sandpoint, ID) and Alanna Robinson (Kuna, ID) are working in the science labs this summer to purify and characterize a human enzyme, alcohol dehydrogenase form ADH1C2. This type of enzyme is essential for processing vitamin A in developing fetuses and adult tissue

In addition to introducing these students to the challenges of research, their work will continue to shed light on how much beverage alcohol slows the rate of conversion of vitamin A and causes diseases such as fetal alcohol syndrome, cirrhosis and cancer.

“Alanna and Emily have learned so quickly to do good research that we will be able to submit their summer work as a journal article that will complete the characterization of this form of alcohol dehydrogenase.”-Dr. Jennifer Chase, principal investigator/advisor.
