|Other Names||Aldehyde dehydrogenase family 1 member A3, Aldehyde dehydrogenase 6, Retinaldehyde dehydrogenase 3, RALDH-3, RalDH3, ALDH1A3, ALDH6|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7847a was selected from the N-term region of human ALDH1A3. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|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||Recognizes as substrates free retinal and cellular retinol-binding protein-bound retinal. Seems to be the key enzyme in the formation of an RA gradient along the dorso-ventral axis during the early eye development and also in the development of the olfactory system (By similarity).|
|Tissue Location||Expressed at low levels in many tissues and at higher levels in salivary gland, stomach, and kidney|

Aldehyde dehydrogenase isozymes are thought to play a major role in the detoxification of aldehydes generated by alcohol metabolism and lipid peroxidation. The enzyme ALDH1A3 uses retinal as a substrate, either in a free or cellular retinol-binding protein form.
