UniProt ID: Q568L5
FUNCTION: Catalyzes the NADPH-dependent reduction of a wide variety of carbonyl-containing compounds to their corresponding alcohols. Displays enzymatic activity towards endogenous metabolites such as aromatic and aliphatic aldehydes, ketones, monosaccharides and bile acids. Acts as an aldehyde-detoxification enzyme (By similarity). Displays no reductase activity towards retinoids (By similarity). {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P14550, ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P50578, ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P51635}.
CATALYTIC ACTIVITY: Reaction=a primary alcohol + NADP(+) = an aldehyde + H(+) + NADPH; Xref=Rhea:RHEA:15937, ChEBI:CHEBI:15378, ChEBI:CHEBI:15734, ChEBI:CHEBI:17478, ChEBI:CHEBI:57783, ChEBI:CHEBI:58349; EC=1.1.1.2; Evidence={ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P14550};
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cytoplasm, cytosol {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q9JII6}. Apical cell membrane {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q9JII6}.
SIMILARITY: Belongs to the aldo/keto reductase family. {ECO:0000305}.
