Saccharomyces cerevisiae (R64-1-1)

Dehydrogenase involved in ubiquinone and sphingolipid metabolism; oxidizes 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde into 4-hydroxybenzoic acid in ubiquinone biosynthesis; converts hexadecenal to hexadecenoic acid in sphingosine 1-phosphate breakdown pathway; located in the mitochondrial outer membrane and also in lipid particles; human homolog ALDH3A2, a fatty aldehyde dehydrogenase (FALDH) mutated in neurocutaneous disorder Sjogren-Larsson syndrome, can complement yeast hfd1 mutant [Source:SGD;Acc:S000004716]


Chromosome XIII: 490,394-491,992 reverse strand.
