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. Altered methylation patterns at this locus have been observed in spermatozoa derived from patients exhibiting reduced fecundity.
