Summary
Enables aldehyde dehydrogenase (NAD+) activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including hexadecanal metabolic process; nervous system development; and terpenoid metabolic process. Predicted to act upstream of or within fatty acid metabolic process. Located in endoplasmic reticulum. Is integral component of membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; decidua; early conceptus; nervous system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Sjogren-Larsson syndrome. Orthologous to human ALDH3A2 (aldehyde dehydrogenase 3 family member A2). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.

    Status: VALIDATED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (3) differs in the 5' UTR, lacks a portion of the 5' coding region, and uses a downstream translation start site compared to variant 1. The encoded isoform (3) has a shorter N-terminus than isoform 1.

RNA

  1. NR_138545.2 RNA Sequence

    Status: VALIDATED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (4) uses an alternate 3' exon structure compared to variant 1. This variant is represented as non-coding because the use of the 5'-most expected translational start codon renders the transcript a candidate for nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD).
