Aldolase B

Aldolase B

Aldolase B is an isoenzyme of fructose 1,6-bisphosphate aldolase (aldolase A), which is also capable of cleaving fructose 1-phosphate to form glyceraldehyde and dihydroxyacetone phosphate (DHAP). The reaction is reversible. Also known as Aldolase (Class II), it is found in the liver and kidney.

Aldolase B, fructose-bisphosphate, also known as ALDOB, is a human gene.cite web | title = Entrez Gene: ALDOB aldolase B, fructose-bisphosphate| url =| accessdate = ]

summary_text = Fructose-1,6-bisphosphate aldolase (EC ) is a tetrameric glycolytic enzyme that catalyzes the reversible conversion of fructose-1,6-bisphosphate to glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate and dihydroxyacetone phosphate. Vertebrates have 3 aldolase isozymes which are distinguished by their electrophoretic and catalytic properties. Differences indicate that aldolases A, B, and C are distinct proteins, the products of a family of related 'housekeeping' genes exhibiting developmentally regulated expression of the different isozymes. The developing embryo produces aldolase A, which is produced in even greater amounts in adult muscle where it can be as much as 5% of total cellular protein. In adult liver, kidney and intestine, aldolase A expression is repressed and aldolase B is produced. In brain and other nervous tissue, aldolase A and C are expressed about equally. There is a high degree of homology between aldolase A and C. Defects in ALDOB cause hereditary fructose intolerance.cite web | title = Entrez Gene: ALDOB aldolase B, fructose-bisphosphate| url =| accessdate = ]


Defects of aldolase B cause fructose 1-phosphate to accumulate in tissues which contain fructokinase, a condition known as hereditary fructose intolerance.
