MetaCyc Enzyme: retinal dehydrogenase 1

Gene: ALDH1A1 Accession Number: HS09183 (MetaCyc)

Synonyms: ALDC, ALDH1, PUMB1, aldehyde dehydrogenase family 1 member A1, cytosolic aldehyde dehydrogenase, ALDH-E1, ALHDII, RALDH 1, RalDH1

Species: Homo sapiens

Summary:
Retinal dehydrogenase 1 can bind both free retinal and RBP1-bound retinal and oxidize it into retinoate.

The enzyme was originally known as the cytosolic isozyme of liver aldehyde dehydrogenase [Hempel84, Abriola87]. However, characterization of the enzyme's activity showed that it exhibits strong activity for oxidation of retinal to retinoic acid, with the catalytic efficiency (Vmax/Km) about 600 times higher than that for acetaldehyde [Yoshida92a, Yoshida93a]. Thus, the enzyme was renamed retinal dehydrogenase 1. ALDH1A1 enzyme purified from rat recognizes RBP1-bound retinal as substrate (with Km = 0.8 μM) and is inhibited by apo-CRBP1 with an IC50 of 1.4 μM [Penzes97].

The human gene, which is located on q21 of chromosome 9, has been cloned and its structure analyzed [Hsu86, Raghunathan88, Hsu89]. cDNAs encoding the enzyme were cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli [Hsu85a, Zheng93].
