Recombinant Human ALDH1A1/ALDC Protein (His Tag) (RPES2227)



ELISA Kit Technical Manual

Recombinant Human ALDH1A1/ALDC Protein (His Tag)

Background:Aldehyde Dehydrogenase Family 1 Member A1 (ALDH1A1) is a cytoplasmic enzyme that belongs to the Aldehyde Dehydrogenase family. ALDH1A1 is the second enzyme of the major oxidative pathway of alcohol metabolism. Two major liver isoforms of this enzyme, cytosolic and mitochondrial, can be distinguished by their electrophoretic mobilities, kinetic properties and subcellular localizations. ALDH1A1 is the main cytosolic isoform, which has a lower affinity for aldehydes than the mitochondrial enzyme. ALDH1A1 binds free retinal and cellular retinol-binding protein-bound retinal. It can convert/oxidize retinaldehyde to retinoic acid.

NCBI Summary:The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the aldehyde dehydrogenase family. Aldehyde dehydrogenase is the next enzyme after alcohol dehydrogenase in the major pathway of alcohol metabolism. There are two major aldehyde dehydrogenase isozymes in the liver, cytosolic and mitochondrial, which are encoded by distinct genes, and can be distinguished by their electrophoretic mobility, kinetic properties, and subcellular localization. This gene encodes the cytosolic isozyme. Studies in mice show that through its role in retinol metabolism, this gene may also be involved in the regulation of the metabolic responses to high-fat diet. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2011]
