Summaries for ALDH3B1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ALDH3B1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the aldehyde dehydrogenase protein family. Aldehyde dehydrogenases are a family of isozymes that may play a major role in the detoxification of aldehydes generated by alcohol metabolism and lipid peroxidation. The encoded protein is able to oxidize long-chain fatty aldehydes in vitro, and may play a role in protection from oxidative stress. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2014]

GeneCards Summary for ALDH3B1 Gene

ALDH3B1 (Aldehyde Dehydrogenase 3 Family Member B1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Histidine metabolism and Metabolism of xenobiotics by cytochrome P450. GO annotations related to this gene include oxidoreductase activity and 3-chloroallyl aldehyde dehydrogenase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ALDH3A1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ALDH3B1 Gene

  • Oxidizes medium and long chain saturated and unsaturated aldehydes. Metabolizes also benzaldehyde. Low activity towards acetaldehyde and 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetaldehyde. May not metabolize short chain aldehydes. May use both NADP(+) and NAD(+) as cofactors. May have a protective role against the cytotoxicity induced by lipid peroxidation.
