Gene: Aldh1a2 (aldehyde dehydrogenase family 1, subfamily A2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Aldh1a2
Name: aldehyde dehydrogenase family 1, subfamily A2
Description: Exhibits 3-chloroallyl aldehyde dehydrogenase activity and retinal dehydrogenase activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; embryonic morphogenesis; and retinoid metabolic process. Predicted to localize to the cytosol and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Used to study DiGeorge syndrome. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human ALDH1A2 (aldehyde dehydrogenase 1 family member A2); PARTICIPATES IN retinoic acid metabolic pathway; retinol metabolic pathway; vitamin A deficiency pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17beta-estradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2-Ethylhexanoic acid.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
