Aldedehyde dehydrogenase 5 family
Aldehyde dehydrogenase 5 family member A1
Aldehyde dehydrogenase 5A1
Catalyzes one step in the degradation of the inhibitory neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA).
Brain, pancreas, heart, liver, skeletal muscle and kidney. Lower in placenta.
Amino-acid degradation; 4-aminobutanoate degradation.
Involvement in disease
Defects in ALDH5A1 are the cause of succinate semialdehyde dehydrogenase deficiency (SSADH deficiency) [MIM:271980]. SSADH deficiency is a rare inborn error in the metabolism of 4-aminobutyric acid (GABA) which leads to accumulation of 4-hydroxybutyric acid in physiologic fluids of patients. The disease is characterized by severe ataxia and by mildly retarded psychomotor development.
Belongs to the aldehyde dehydrogenase family.
