Summaries for ALDH1L1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ALDH1L1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene catalyzes the conversion of 10-formyltetrahydrofolate, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP+), and water to tetrahydrofolate, NADPH, and carbon dioxide. The encoded protein belongs to the aldehyde dehydrogenase family. Loss of function or expression of this gene is associated with decreased apoptosis, increased cell motility, and cancer progression. There is an antisense transcript that overlaps on the opposite strand with this gene locus. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2012]

GeneCards Summary for ALDH1L1 Gene

ALDH1L1 (Aldehyde Dehydrogenase 1 Family, Member L1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ALDH1L1 include methanol poisoning and congenital hydrocephalus. Among its related pathways are One carbon pool by folate and One carbon pool by folate.
