Protein Product
hexadecenal dehydrogenase
Feature Type
ORF , Verified
Dehydrogenase involved in ubiquinone and sphingolipid metabolism; converts 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde into 4-hydroxybenzoate for ubiquinone anabolism, hexadecenal to hexadecenoic acid in sphingosine 1-phosphate catabolism; human homolog ALDH3A2, mutated in Sjogren-Larsson syndrome, can rescue yeast hfd1 mutant; human ALDH3A1, but not ALDH3A2, rescues pABA- respiratory growth phenotype of hfd1 null; data suggest that dual functions of Hfd1p have diverged in human ALDH3A1, ALDH3A2 1 2 3 4
