Abstract Membrane-bound, pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ)-dependent glycerol dehydrogenase (GLDH, or polyol dehydrogenase) of Gluconobacter sp. oxidizes various secondary alcohols to produce the corresponding ketones, such as oxidation of D -sorbitol to L -sorbose in vitamin C production. Substrate specificity of GLDH is considered limited to secondary alcohols in the D - erythro configuration at th
