Gene: Aldh3a2 (aldehyde dehydrogenase family 3, subfamily A2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Aldh3a2
Name: aldehyde dehydrogenase family 3, subfamily A2
Description: Exhibits aldehyde dehydrogenase (NAD+) activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including hexadecanal metabolic process; nervous system development; and terpenoid metabolic process. Localizes to endoplasmic reticulum and integral component of membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; decidua; early conceptus; nervous system; and sensory organ. 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 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,2',4,4',5,5'-hexachlorobiphenyl; 2,2',4,4'-Tetrabromodiphenyl ether.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
