Symbol/Gene Name:  ALDH1A2

Alias:  Retinal dehydrogenase 2,RALDH 2,RalDH2,Aldehyde dehydrogenase family 1 member A2,Retinaldehyde-specific dehydrogenase type 2,RALDH(II)

Uniprot: O94788

Background: Converts retinaldehyde to retinoic acid (PubMed:29240402). Recognizes as substrates free retinal and cellular retinol-binding protein-bound retinal. Can metabolize octanal and decanal, but has only very low activity with benzaldehyde, acetaldehyde and propanal. Displays complete lack of activity with citral (By similarity).

Construct: RALDH2(L26-S518 end)

Expression Host: E. coli

Purity: 90%

Formulation: 50 mM Tris-HCl (pH7.5), 200 mM NaCl, 20% glycerol

Supplied as sterile
