For decades, it has been acknowledged that oxidative stress due to free radical species contributes to the pathophysiology of aging and neurodegenerative diseases. Aldehyde dehydrogenases (ALDH) not only transform aldehydes to acids but also act as antioxidant enzymes. However, little is known about the implications of the enzymatic family of ALDH in the(More)
Aldehyde dehydrogenases (ALDH) play a key role in neuronal protection. They exert this function by metabolizing biogenic amine-related aldehydes, e.g. 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetaldehyde (DOPAL), and by protecting neurons against aldehyde- and oxidative stress-related neurotoxicity. The role of these different isoenzymes has been discussed in other(More)
