QuickView for ALDH2 (gene)

Gene Symbol:
ALDH2 Homo sapiens Homo sapiens
Full name:
aldehyde dehydrogenase 2 family (mitochondrial)
ALDH-E2, ALDHI, ALDM, aldehyde dehydrogenase, mitochondrial, ALDH class 2, acetaldehyde dehydrogenase 2, liver mitochondrial ALDH, nucleus-encoded mitochondrial aldehyde dehydrogenase 2
Genomic Location:
Chr 12: 110688729-110732167
This protein belongs to the aldehyde dehydrogenase family of proteins. Aldehyde dehydrogenase is the second enzyme of the major oxidative pathway of alcohol metabolism. Two major liver isoforms of aldehyde dehydrogenase, cytosolic and mitochondrial, can be distinguished by their electrophoretic mobilities, kinetic properties, and subcellular locali...
