While one would expect that the Km of acetaldehyde as a substrate would be the same as the Ki for acetaldehyde when it functions as a competitive substrate, this also has not been studied carefully. This consideration may be important in our understanding not only of the pathways of acetaldehyde removal, but also of the many effects that acetaldehyde has via the surrogate aldehydes allowed to escape metabolism by their preferred enzyme. This would result in a ‘multiplying’ or ‘amplification’ effect of the relatively small amount of acetaldehyde present.

The conclusion is that there is an increased risk factor for ALDH2-deficient individuals for head and neck cancer. There are also reports of increased incidence of cancer of the gastrointestinal tract (reviewed in Salaspuro 2003) in hepatocellular carcinoma (Kato et al 2003, Sakamoto et al 2005), oesophageal cancer (Morita et al 2005, Watanabe et al 2002) but not in colorectal adenomas (Hirose et al 2005). There is enhanced oxidative stress (Ohsawa et al 2003) perhaps related to late onset Alzheimer’s disease (Ohta et al 2004) although this is disputed (Kim et al 2004, Shin et al 2005).
