Summaries for RDH13 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RDH13 Gene

  • This gene encodes a mitochondrial short-chain dehydrogenase/reductase, which catalyzes the reduction and oxidation of retinoids. The encoded enzyme may function in retinoic acid production and may also protect the mitochondria against oxidative stress. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009]

GeneCards Summary for RDH13 Gene
