The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/50 - 1/100. Predicted molecular weight: 50 kDa.
FunctionALDHs play a major role in the detoxification of alcohol-derived acetaldehyde. They are involved in the metabolism of corticosteroids, biogenic amines, neurotransmitters, and lipid peroxidation. This protein preferentially oxidizes aromatic aldehyde substrates. It may play a role in the oxidation of toxic aldehydes.
Tissue specificityHigh levels in stomach, esophagus and lung; low level in the liver and kidney.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the aldehyde dehydrogenase family.
