EC 1.2.1.94     
Accepted name: farnesal dehydrogenase
Reaction: (2E,6E)-farnesal + NAD+ + H2O = (2E,6E)-farnesoate + NADH + 2 H+
Glossary: farnesal = 3,7,11-trimethyldodeca-2,6,10-trienal
farnesoate = 3,7,11-trimethyldodeca-2,6,10-trienoate
Other name(s): AaALDH3
Systematic name: farnesal:NAD+ oxidoreductase
Comments: Invoved in juvenile hormone production in insects. The enzyme was described from the corpora allata of Drosophila melanogaster (fruit fly), Manduca sexta (tobacco hornworm) and Aedes aegypti (dengue mosquito).
