The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 0.3 - 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 57 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.
Tissue specificityLiver, testis and to a lesser extent in brain.
PathwayAlcohol metabolism; ethanol degradation; acetate from ethanol: step 2/2.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the aldehyde dehydrogenase family.
