Prior to the beginning of the 8th assembly, I had the nice feel to invite Professor Rosa Angela Canuto of Turin, Italy if she may aid me manage the 9th assembly. She fast steered that either she and Dr. Guiliana Muzio, additionally of Turin, aid plan the meet­ ing. each one of our past 8 conferences used to be a special event for the individuals. The technological know-how used to be continuously striking and the shows and discussions have been first-class. by means of relocating each one assembly to another a part of the realm we have been capable of event intriguing meals and cultural elements of the area as well as the technological know-how. The 9th assembly used to be no exception. We met from June 18 to 22 within the small mountain urban of Varallo, Italy, the delivery position of Dr. Canuto. keeping the clinical classes in a several-hundred-year-old switched over mansion and having a day journey to both Lago Maggiore or Monte Rosa made a few features of this assembly tremendous memorable. an extra targeted point of the social element of the assembly used to be our skill to ask the townspeople to proportion with us a live performance played in an previous church. although the social and cultural features of the assembly have been impressive, the pur­ pose of the assembly used to be to switch clinical information regarding the prestige of the 3 enzyme systems.

The potential roles of these two amino acids will be discussed first, as there is little controversy over their proposed roles. It has long been hypothesized that the active site of ALDH contains an Cys residue that acts as a nucleophi1e to covalently attack the incoming aldehydic carbonyl group (Racker, 1955). This residue was subsequently identified as Cys302 in the Class 1 and 2 isoenzymes by a number of methods (Hempel, et al. , 1982, and Farres, et al. 1995). Cys302 sits in the middle of a loop of residues formed by residues 298 to 305.
