Mouse Class 3 Aldehyde Dehydrogenases
The Class 3 aldehyde dehydrogenases include the 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (dioxin, TCDD)-inducible cytosolic form (ALDH3c) and the constitutive microsomal form (ALDH3m), which is also TCDD-inducible. Table 1 summarizes the ALDH nomenclature used in this chapter. It might be noted that the Committee on Standardized Genetic Nomenclature for Mice is adamant about keeping the mouse gene designations the same as they have been for several decades.
