Clinical and translational research on ALDH2 deficiency associated diseases

Edited by Dr Tse-Hua Tan

A thematic series in Journal of Biomedical Science.

  1. The aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH) enzyme family metabolizes and detoxifies both exogenous and endogenous aldehydes. Since chemotherapeutic agents, such as cisplatin, generate cytotoxic aldehydes and oxidative ...
