Description…

ALDH3A1 is a member of the aldehyde dehydrogenase family. They are involved in the metabolism of corticosteroids, biogenic amines, neurotransmitters, and lipid peroxidation. They are also involved in the detoxification of alcohol-derived acetaldehyde. The ALDH3A1 protein is an enzyme that forms a cytoplasmic homodimer that oxidizes aromatic and medium-chain (6 carbons or more) saturated and unsaturated aldehyde substrates. It is thought to promote resistance to UV and 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal-induced oxidative damage in the cornea. There are several splice variants that encode the same protein.
