Encor Mouse monoclonal to Aldehyde Dehydrogenase H1L1 

Aldehyde dehydrogenases (ALDH) are a group of enzymes that catalyze oxidation (dehydrogenation) of aldehydes. To date, nineteen ALDH genes have been identified within the human genome. They belong to 15 families in ALDH superfamily. Among these, aldehyde dehydrogenase family 1, member 1 (ALDH1L1) catalyzes the conversion of 10-formyltetrahydrofolate, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP+), and water to tetrahydrofolate, NADPH, and carbon dioxide. ALDH1L1 expression is tissue-specific and is highly expressed in the liver, representing up to 1% of the total pool of soluble cell proteins in the mammalian liver (1).

In an earlier study, Cahoy et al. applied FACS (Fluorescent-Activated Cell Sorting) to isolate astrocytes from EGFP (Enhanced Green Fluorescent Protein) transgenic-mouse, then created a transcriptome database of the expression levels of 20,000 genes by gene profiling of neurons, astrocytes and oligodendrocytes using Affymetrix GeneChip Arrays (2). They identified ALDH1L1 as a highly and specifically expressed gene in astrocytes. ALDH1L1 is more widely expressed throughout the brains, while astrocyte marker GFAP shows more predominant expression in white matter. In addition, loss of function or expression of ALDH1L1 is associated with decreased apoptosis, increased cell motility, and cancer progression, suggesting its role as a biomarker and a target in cancer therapy (3,4,5).

Monoclonal antibody MCA-2E7 was raised against amino acids 402-902 of human ALDH1L1 expressed in and purified from E. coli. The HGNC name for this protein is ALDH1L1.
