|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||53401 Da|
|Antigen Region||386-416 aa|
|Other Names||Aldehyde dehydrogenase family 8 member A1, 121-, Aldehyde dehydrogenase 12, ALDH8A1, ALDH12|
|Target/Specificity||This ALDH8A1 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 386-416 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human ALDH8A1.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||ALDH8A1 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Converts 9-cis-retinal to 9-cis-retinoic acid. Has lower activity towards 13-cis-retinal. Has much lower activity towards all-trans-retinal. Has highest activity with benzaldehyde and decanal (in vitro). Has a preference for NAD, but shows considerable activity with NADP (in vitro).|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in adult kidney and liver. Detected at lower levels in fetal liver and kidney|

ALDH8A1 belongs to the aldehyde dehydrogenases family of proteins. It plays a role in a pathway of 9-cis-retinoic acid biosynthesis in vivo. This enzyme converts 9-cis-retinal into the retinoid X receptor ligand 9-cis-retinoic acid, and has approximately 40-fold higher activity with 9-cis-retinal than with all-trans-retinal. Therefore, it is the first known aldehyde dehydrogenase to show a preference for 9-cis-retinal relative to all-trans-retinal.
