ALDOA

A gene on chromosome 16p11.2 that encodes aldolase A (fructose-bisphosphate aldolase), a glycolytic enzyme that catalyses the reversible conversion of fructose-1,6-bisphosphate to glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate and dihydroxyacetone phosphate. It is expressed in the developing embryo and in adult muscle, and actively repressed in adult liver, kidney and intestine.

Molecular pathology
Aldolase A deficiency is associated with myopathy and haemolytic anaemia.
