Gene: AKR1B1 (aldo-keto reductase family 1 member B) Homo sapiens
Analyze
Symbol: AKR1B1
Name: aldo-keto reductase family 1 member B
Description: Exhibits alditol:NADP+ 1-oxidoreductase activity; glyceraldehyde oxidoreductase activity; and retinal dehydrogenase activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular hyperosmotic salinity response; glycoside metabolic process; and retinoid metabolic process. Localizes to the cytosol and nucleoplasm. Implicated in arteriosclerosis; cataract; diabetic neuropathy; diabetic retinopathy; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Biomarker of hepatocellular carcinoma and stomach cancer.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: ADR; aldehyde reductase 1; aldehyde reductase 1 (low km aldose reductase) (5.8 kb psti fragment, probably the functional gene); aldo-keto reductase family 1 member B1; aldo-keto reductase family 1, member B1 (aldose reductase); aldose reductase; ALDR1; ALR2; AR; Lii5-2 CTCL tumor antigen; low Km aldose reductase; MGC1804
