ADH7 Information: ADH7 Protein, ADH7 Antibody and ADH7 Gene

ADH7 Gene family

ADH7 Protein

ADH7 protein function

Could function in retinol oxidation for the synthesis of retinoic acid, a hormone important for cellular differentiation. Medium-chain (octanol) and aromatic (m-nitrobenzaldehyde) compounds are the best substrates. Ethanol is not a good substrate but at the high ethanol concentrations reached in the digestive tract, it plays a role in the ethanol oxidation and contributes to the first pass ethanol metabolism.

ADH7 protein expression

Tissue specificity

Preferentially expressed in stomach.
