fasta formatted sequence

Function: Exhibits an oxidoreductive catalytic activity towards retinoids. Most efficient as an NADPH-dependent retinal reductase. Displays high activity towards 9-cis and all-trans-retinol. Also involved in the metabolism of short-chain aldehydes. No steroid dehydrogenase activity detected.
Catalytic activity: All-trans-retinol + NADP(+) = all-trans- retinal + NADPH.
Cellular location: Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein.
Tissue specificity: Predominantly expressed in the epithelial cells of prostate, in both basal and luminal secretory cell populations. Expressed at low levels in spleen, thymus, testis, ovary, small intestine, colon, peripherical blood leukocytes, kidney, adrenal gland and fetal liver. Not detected in prostatic fibromuscular stromal cells, endothelial cells, or infiltrating lymphocytes.
