Aldehyde Dehydrogenase is primarily known for its role in alcohol detoxification with the conversion of acetaldehyde to acetate. It has a number
of lesser-known functions beyond that as a key ingredient in detoxification of endogenous products during lipid metabolism and oxidative stress;
as an important influence in neuroprotection (removal of aldehydes formed during dopamine catabolism) and in retinal health; protection off the
heart against ischemic injury. Dysregulation and elevated levels are found in a variety of cancers where it appears to contribute to resistance to
chemotherapy and in promoting tumor progression. This wide range of activities contributed by a number of different isotypes makes the ability
to monitor ALDH levels important. AkrivisBio’s Aldehyde Dehydrogenase Activity Assay is a very simple, sensitive way to monitor ALDH activity
in a variety of sample types with a sensitivity below 50 µUnits.
