Gene: Aldh1a2 (aldehyde dehydrogenase 1 family, member A2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Aldh1a2
Name: aldehyde dehydrogenase 1 family, member A2
Description: Exhibits retinal binding activity and retinal dehydrogenase activity. Involved in several processes, including gland development; response to vitamin A; and retinoic acid biosynthetic process. Localizes to cytosol and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Orthologous to human ALDH1A2 (aldehyde dehydrogenase 1 family member A2); PARTICIPATES IN retinoic acid metabolic pathway; retinol metabolic pathway; vitamin A deficiency pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 3'-amino-3'-deoxy-N(6),N(6)-dimethyladenosine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: aldehyde dehydrogenase 1A2; aldehyde dehydrogenase family 1 member A2; aldehyde dehydrogenase family 1, subfamily A2; MGC114283; RALDH 2; RalDH(II); Raldh-2; ralDH2; retinal dehydrogenase 2; retinal dehydrogenase type II; retinal dehydrogenase, type II; retinaldehyde-specific dehydrogenase type 2
