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.
23850972 Thus, our findings suggest that the -888G > C polymorphism in the SORD gene is not involved in the pathogenesis of diabtic retinopathy in type 2 diabetes.
23452182 The SDH level was significantly decreased in patients with proliferative compared with non-proliferative retinopathy in both insulin and oral diabetic groups.

20372835 The expression of SORD is regulated by androgens in human prostate. In prostate cancer, increased immunostaining was associated with high Gleason patterns and high serum PSA concentrations.
19423711 The zinc-finger protein ZAC1 is up-regulated under hypertonic stress and negatively regulates expression of sorbitol dehydrogenase, allowing for accumulation of sorbitol as a compatible organic osmolyte.
17343568 Results compare the catalytic mechanism of liver sorbitol dehydrogenase with wild-type and Glu154-->Cys forms of yeast xylitol dehydrogenase.
14965227 Sorbitol dehydrogenase (SDH), a member of the medium-chain dehydrogenase/reductase protein family and the second enzyme of the polyol pathway of glucose metabolism, converts sorbitol to fructose strictly using NAD(+) as coenzyme.
12595725 crystals of sorbitol dehydrogenase belong to the monoclinic C2 space group, with unit-cell parameters a = 145.9, b = 52.3, c = 169.0 A, beta = 101.8 degrees
