Aldolase B, fructose-bisphosphate

The ALDOB gene encodes aldolase B, a enzyme involved in fructose metabolism. It is an houskeeping gene that can be found in almost all cells of the body. In adults most of its activity accumulates in liver, kidney and intestinal tissue. If mutated autosomal recessive fructosemia ensues.
