The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/500 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 53 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 53 kDa).
FunctionConverts 9-cis-retinal to 9-cis-retinoic acid. Has lower activity towards 13-cis-retinal. Has much lower activity towards all-trans-retinal. Has highest activity with benzaldehyde and decanal (in vitro). Has a preference for NAD, but shows considerable activity with NADP (in vitro).
Tissue specificityHighly expressed in adult kidney and liver. Detected at lower levels in fetal liver and kidney.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the aldehyde dehydrogenase family.
