HMDB Protein ID HMDBP11906
Secondary Accession Numbers None
Name Epidermal retinol dehydrogenase 2
  1. EPHD-2
  2. RDH-E2
  3. Retinal short-chain dehydrogenase reductase 2
  4. Short-chain dehydrogenase/reductase family 16C member 5
  5. retSDR2
Gene Name SDR16C5
Protein Type Unknown
Biological Properties
General Function Not Available
Specific Function Oxidoreductase with strong preference for NAD. Active in both the oxidative and reductive directions. Oxidizes all-trans-retinol in all-trans-retinaldehyde. No activity was detected with 11-cis-retinol or 11-cis-retinaldehyde as substrates with either NAD(+)/NADH or NADP(+)/NADPH.
  • Retinol metabolism
