Technical Data
ALDH1A1, CT (Retinal Dehydrogenase 1, RalDH1, RALDH 1, Aldehyde Dehydrogenase Family 1 Member A1, Aldehyde Dehydrogenase, Cytosolic, ALHDII, ALDH-E1, ALDH1A1, ALDC, ALDH1, PUMB1)
ALDH1A1 belongs to the aldehyde dehydrogenases family of proteins. Aldehyde dehydrogenase 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. Most Caucasians have two major isozymes, while approximately 50% of Orientals have only the cytosolic isozyme, missing the mitochondrial isozyme. A remarkably higher frequency of acute alcohol intoxication among Orientals than among Caucasians could be related to the absence of the mitochondrial isozyme.

Suitable for use in ELISA, Immunohistochemistry and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
