26566217 ALDH1B1 is expressed at very high levels in human pancreatic cancer, and it contributes to proliferation in these tumor cells.
26366059 High expression of ALDH1A2 and ALDH1B1 mRNA was found to be significantly correlated to worser survival in all NSCLC patients.
25950950 Data show that ALDH1B1 may promote colon cancer tumorigenesis by modulating the Wnt/beta-catenin, Notch and PI3K/Akt signaling pathways.
25413692 ALDH1B1 metabolizes nitroglycerin and all-trans-retinaldehyde. One of the three human polymorphisms, ALDH1B1*2, is catalytically inactive, likely due to poor NAD(+) binding.
25311581 ALDH1B1 SNPs play a role in shaping the alcohol drinking patterns among the Inuit in Greenland.
25047496 Our findings provide clear evidence for both individual and interactive associations of ALDH1b1 and ALDH2 genes with the development of coronary artery disease in Han Chinese.
24953984 ALDH1 is indicative of stemness and is a biomarker marker in colon cancer.
23667679 Telomere lengths in 52 distinct iodine-unstained lesions with reference to both their size and multiplicity, ALDH2 and ADH1B genotypes, and smoking history, were investigated.
23454351 Mitochondrial NAD dependent aldehyde dehydrogenase either from yeast or human replaces yeast cytoplasmic NADP dependent aldehyde dehydrogenase for the aerobic growth of yeast on ethanol.
23247008 Molecular modeling studies examining predicted protein-protein interactions indicated that heterotetramerization between ALDH2 and ALDH1B1 subunits was highly probable and may partially explain a lack of compensation by ALDH1B1 in ALDH2( *)2 individuals.
21216231 ALDH1B1 is more profoundly expressed in the adenocarcinomas examined in this study relative to ALDH1A1 and that ALDH1B1 is dramatically upregulated in human colonic adenocarcinoma, making it a potential biomarker for human colon cancer.
20955166 An ALDHX model based on the crystal structure of human ALDH2, reveals similarities with the previously described ALDH structures. Analyses indicate a close structural and functional relationship between the two isoenzymes of human origin

17628022 Retinoic-acid-induced RAR-CAK signaling events appear to proceed intrinsically during granulocytic development of normal primitive hematopoietic cells. ALDH-governed RA availability may mediate this process by initiating RAR-CAK signaling.
