ALDH2 (Aldehyde Dehydrogenase 2 Family Member) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ALDH2 include alcohol sensitivity, acute, and alcohol dependence. Among its related pathways are glucose metabolism and neurotransmitter clearance.
A medium to high genetic variation in this gene can result in
ALDH2 enzyme deficiency, more commonly known as Alcohol Flushing Syndrome or Asian Glow, which is a genetic condition that interferes with the metabolism of alcohol. If you have a high to medium impact variation in this gene, then it is a good idea to provide increased detox and mitochondria support when consuming alcohol.
