Form Liquid or Lyophilized powder
Note: We will preferentially ship the format that we have in stock, however, if you have any special requirement for the format, please remark your requirement when placing the order, we will prepare according to your demand.
Buffer If the delivery form is liquid, the default storage buffer is Tris/PBS-based buffer, 5%-50% glycerol.
Note: If you have any special requirement for the glycerol content, please remark when you place the order.
If the delivery form is lyophilized powder, the buffer before lyophilization is Tris/PBS-based buffer, 6% Trehalose, pH 8.0.
Reconstitution We recommend that this vial be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Please reconstitute protein in deionized sterile water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL.We recommend to add 5-50% of glycerol (final concentration) and aliquot for long-term storage at -20°C/-80°C. Our default final concentration of glycerol is 50%. Customers could use it as reference.

Protein FAQs
Storage Condition Store at -20°C/-80°C upon receipt, aliquoting is necessary for mutiple use. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Shelf Life The shelf life is related to many factors, storage state, buffer ingredients, storage temperature and the stability of the protein itself.
Generally, the shelf life of liquid form is 6 months at -20°C/-80°C. The shelf life of lyophilized form is 12 months at -20°C/-80°C.
Lead Time 3-7 business days
Notes Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4°C for up to one week.

Target Background

Converts retinaldehyde to retinoic acid. Recognizes as substrates free retinal and cellular retinol-binding protein-bound retinal. Can metabolize octanal and decanal, but has only very low activity with benzaldehyde, acetaldehyde and propanal. Displays complete lack of activity with citral.

  1. The authors findings indicate that the SNP rs4238326 in ALDH1A2 gene may potentially modify individual susceptibility to knee OA in the Chinese population. PMID: 28089900
  2. high transcription activities of ALDH1A2, ALDH1A3 and ALDH1L1 predicted worsen overall survival in gastric cancer patients PMID: 27015121
  3. Data show that hRALDH2 is not inhibited by its oxidation product, all-trans-RA, suggesting the absence of a negative feedback regulatory loop. Expression of the Raldh2 gene is known to be regulated by RA itself, suggesting that the main regulation of the hRALDH2 activity level is transcriptional. PMID: 27001866

  11. Severe osteoarthritis of the hand associates with common variants within the ALDH1A2 gene and with rare variants at 1p31. PMID: 24728293
  12. These findings suggest that ALDH1A2 is the enzyme involved in retinoic acid biosynthesis in human germ cells. PMID: 24524833
  13. all three proteins (RDH10, RALDH2, and CRABP2) appeared to be required for ATRA production induced by activation of PPARgamma PMID: 23833249
  14. ALDH1A2 protein was effective in AraC resistance. ALDH1A2 knock-down induced sensitivity to AraC treatment in K562AC cells. ALDH1A2 overexpressed K562S cells acquired the AraC resistance. Ara-C-resistant patients had increased ALDH1A2. PMID: 23507523
  15. In vivo reduction of vitamin A levels results in an increase in astrocyte RALDH2 expression in the hippocampus. PMID: 22930583
  16. Aberrant methylation of ALDH1a2 gene is the main cause for gene transcriptional inactivation in human bladder cancer cell lines. 5-Aza-2'-deoxycitydine or trichostatin A treatment induces ALDH1a2 expression. PMID: 20450613
  17. A human ALDH1A2 gene variant is associated with increased newborn kidney size and serum retinoic acid. PMID: 20375987

  22. Gene duplication event that gave rise to Aldh1a1 and Aldh1a2 was more recent than the duplication event that gave rise to Aldh1a3. PMID: 19478994
  23. our screen indicates that ALDH1A2 genetic variation is present in tetralogy of Fallot patients, suggesting a possible causal role for this gene in rare cases of human congenital heart disease PMID: 19886994
