Recombinant mouse Retinal dehydrogenase 1 protein (2-501AA)
ELISA;Not yet tested in other applications.
Background / Function
In addition to the activity on acetaldehyde and related substrates, is also involved in the oxidation of aldehydes derived from biogenic amines such as epinephrine and norepinephrine, as well as the aldehydes generated via lipid peroxidation. Binds free retinal and cellular retinol-binding protein-bound retinal. Can convert/oxidize retinaldehyde to retinoic acid (By similarity).
