|Other Names||Retinol dehydrogenase 12, 111-, All-trans and 9-cis retinol dehydrogenase, RDH12|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Exhibits an oxidoreductive catalytic activity towards retinoids. Most efficient as an NADPH-dependent retinal reductase. Displays high activity toward 9-cis and all-trans-retinol. Also involved in the metabolism of short-chain aldehydes. No steroid dehydrogenase activity detected. Might be the key enzyme in the formation of 11-cis-retinal from 11-cis-retinol during regeneration of the cone visual pigments.|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed, mostly in eye, kidney, brain, skeletal muscle and stomach|

The protein encoded by this gene is an NADPH-dependentretinal reductase whose highest activity is toward 9-cis andall-trans-retinol. The encoded enzyme also plays a role in themetabolism of short-chain aldehydes but does not exhibit steroiddehydrogenase activity. Defects in this gene are a cause of Lebercongenital amaurosis type 3 (LCA3).
