Gene: Aldh3a2 (aldehyde dehydrogenase 3 family, member A2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Aldh3a2
Name: aldehyde dehydrogenase 3 family, member A2
RGD ID: 61866
Description: Exhibits 3-chloroallyl aldehyde dehydrogenase activity. Involved in formaldehyde metabolic process and response to reactive oxygen species. Localizes to cytosol; extrinsic component of endoplasmic reticulum membrane; and nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Sjogren-Larsson syndrome. Orthologous to human ALDH3A2 (aldehyde dehydrogenase 3 family member A2); PARTICIPATES IN phytanic acid degradation pathway; Refsum disease pathway; arginine and proline metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; 1,2,4-trimethylbenzene; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
