    Effects of the common polymorphism in the human aldehyde dehydrogenase 2 (ALDH2) gene on the lung

    Aldehyde dehydrogenases (ALDHs) play a major role in detoxification of aldehydes. High expression of ALDHs is a marker for stem cells of many organs including the lungs. A common polymorphism in ALDH2 gene (ALDH2...
