Secondary Information

Protein Function represent large family members of NAD(P)+-dependent dehydrogenases responsible for the irreversible metabolism of many endogenous and exogenous aldehydes to the corresponding acids; catalyzes the oxidation of acetaldehyde to acetate during ethanol metabolism;
Biochemical Properties cytosolic and mitochondrial forms, designated as ALDH1 and ALDH2, are both tetrameric with individual subunits comprising 499–500 amino acids and they share 68% sequence identity with each other; vA transition to full-site reactivity, however, occurs at elevated pH or in the presence of Mg2+; low Km enzyme responsible for the metabolism of acetaldehyde and lipid peroxides such as malondialdehyde and 4-hydroxynonenal, both of which are highly reactive and toxic; inhibition of ALDH2 would lead to elevated levels of acetaldehyde and other reactive lipid peroxides; require NAD+ as a cofactor
Significance in milk in lactating rodent mammary epicelial cells, upregulation of aldehyde dehydrogenase which is associated with the breakdown of acetate and beta-hydroxy butyrate to provide additional sources of acetyl CoA, a substrate for the TCA cycle and subsequent ATP synthesis
PTMs cytosolic ALDH1A1, mitochondrial ALDH2, and other isozymes such as ALDH5A1 and ALDH6A1 were oxidatively-modified in rats exposed to alcohol; protein kinases such as protein kinase Cε (PKCε) can phosphorylate and activate mitochondrial ALDH2 - Thr185, Thr412 and possibly Ser279 of ALDH2 could be phosphorylated by PKCε, resulting in ALDH2 activation; ALDH2 could be inhibited through protein nitration based on the recent data where GTN promotes nitration signaling; ALDH2 activity was mildly inhibited by NO or hydrogen peroxide in the experimental conditions, but was markedly inhibited by incubation with peroxynitrite
