AFMB Structural Genomics target No. 57 (http://afmb.cnrs-mrs.fr/article171.html). HT_Cmplx40_Cyt: YbgI+YqhD. YqhD is induced under conditions that favor lipid oxidation; overexpression increases resistance to paraquat, hydrogen peroxide and the lipid peroxidation-derived aldehydes butanaldehyde, propanaldehyde, acrolein and malondialdehyde; yqhD mutants are senstive to paraquat and hydrogen peroxide (Perez, 2008). YqhD catalyzes the NADPH-dependent reduction of acetaldehyde, malondialdehyde, propanaldehyde, butanaldehyde and acrolein in vitro (Perez, 2008). YqhD was reported to have no aldehyde dehydrogenase activity and to have in vitro alcohol dehydrogenase activity with a preference for alcohols longer than C3(Sulzenbacher , 2004), however these results are contradicted by Perez (2009).
