|Function||Oxidoreductase with strong preference for NAD. Active in both the oxidative and reductive directions. Oxidizes all-trans- retinol in all-trans-retinaldehyde. No activity was detected with 11-cis-retinol or 11-cis-retinaldehyde as substrates with either NAD(+)/NADH or NADP(+)/NADPH.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Detected in adult lung. Detected at low levels in adult brain, heart, testis, placenta, cervix, pancreas, uterus, stomach, rectum, small intestine, colon, esophagus, thymus, skin, and skin keratinocyte. Expression is higher in psoriasis lesions relative to unaffected skin from psoriasis patients. Detected in fetal kidney, skin and lung.|
