25885804 Meta-analysis shows that the AR rs759853 polymorphism may correlate with the susceptibility of DN. However, data do not support the association between this DNA variation and the progression of DN.
25722213 ALR C(-106)T polymorphism was not associated with an increased risk of Diabetic Retinopathy; subgroup analysis showed a genetic association between ALR C(-106)T polymorphism and the risk of Diabetic Retinopathy of type 1 Diabetes but not Diabetic Retinopathy of type 2 Diabetes(Meta-Analysis)

25446850 Higher expression of PLA2G2A, PTGS2, AKR1B1, AKR1C3 and ABCC4 was seen in 22-B endometriosis cells.
25123395 Data conclude that AKR1B1 and TM6SF1 may serve as candidate methylation biomarkers for early breast cancer detection.
24698671 Aldose reductase gene may not be significantly associated with diabetic retinopathy in Chinese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
24663124 role of the human aldose reductase AKR1B1 in prostaglandin (PG) F2 alpha synthesis in human subcutaneous and omental adipose tissue
24567419 One of the most striking changes involved sorbitol dehydrogenase, a key enzyme in the polyol pathway. Validation studies revealed dramatically increased sorbitol dehydrogenase concentrations and activity in adenomas and cancer cell lines, along with important changes in the expression of other enzymes in the same (AKR1B1) and related (KHK) pathways.
24474649 Aldose reductase contributes to diabetes-mediated mitochondrial dysfunction and damage through the activation of p53.
24360973 In type 2 diabetic patients with suboptimal glycaemic control, the z-4 allele of ALR2 (CA)n polymorphism was independently associated with increased susceptibility to cataracts.
