Aldo-keto reductase family 1 member B10 is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the AKR1B10 gene.[5][6][7]

This gene encodes a member of the aldo/keto reductase superfamily, which consists of more than 40 known enzymes and proteins. This member can efficiently reduce aliphatic and aromatic aldehydes, and it is less active on hexoses, it is highly expressed in adrenal gland, small intestine, and colon, and may play an important role in liver carcinogenesis.[7]
