This gene encodes a member of the aldehyde dehydrogenase family, a group of isozymes that may play a major role in the detoxification of aldehydes generated by alcohol metabolism and lipid peroxidation. The gene of this particular family member is over 10 kb in length. The expression of these transcripts is restricted to the salivary gland among the human tissues examined. Alternate transcriptional splice variants have been characterized. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for ALDH3B2 Gene
ALDH3B2 (Aldehyde Dehydrogenase 3 Family Member B2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are 2-deoxy-alpha-D-ribose 1-phosphate degradation and beta-Alanine metabolism (KEGG). GO annotations related to this gene include oxidoreductase activity and 3-chloroallyl aldehyde dehydrogenase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ALDH3B1.
