Disease relevance of Aldh5a1


High impact information on Aldh5a1

  • Indeed, treatment of mutant mice with the amino acid taurine rescued Aldh5a1-/- mice [1].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Aldh5a1

  • The membrane homogenate binding and quantitative autoradiography using [(3)H]NCS-382 revealed no significant changes in the affinity (K(d)), receptor density (B(max)), or displacement potency (IC(50)) in various brain regions of Aldh5a1(-/-) vs. Aldh5a1(+/+) mice [2].
