Gene: Aldh2 (aldehyde dehydrogenase 2, mitochondrial) Mus musculus
Symbol: Aldh2
Name: aldehyde dehydrogenase 2, mitochondrial
Description: Predicted to have NADH binding activity; aldehyde dehydrogenase (NAD+) activity; and identical protein binding activity. Predicted to be involved in negative regulation of apoptotic process. Localizes to the mitochondrion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including alcohol use disorder; artery disease (multiple); diabetes mellitus (multiple); diabetic neuropathy; and liver disease (multiple). Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; nervous system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human ALDH2 (aldehyde dehydrogenase 2 family member); PARTICIPATES IN 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA lyase deficiency pathway; 3-hydroxyisobutyric aciduria pathway; 3-methylcrotonyl CoA carboxylase 1 deficiency pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrabromodibenzodioxine; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2-ethoxyethanol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
