Gene: ALDH3A2 (aldehyde dehydrogenase 3 family member A2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ALDH3A2
Name: aldehyde dehydrogenase 3 family member A2
Description: Exhibits aldehyde dehydrogenase (NAD+) activity; long-chain-alcohol oxidase activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including hexadecanal metabolic process; nervous system development; and terpenoid metabolic process. Localizes to the peroxisome. Implicated in Sjogren-Larsson syndrome.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: aldehyde dehydrogenase 10; aldehyde dehydrogenase 3 family, member A2; aldehyde dehydrogenase family 3 member A2; aldehyde dehydrogenase family 3, subfamily a2; ALDH10; DKFZp686E23276; FALDH; fatty aldehyde dehydrogenase; FLJ20851; microsomal aldehyde dehydrogenase; SLS
