    Activity variants of the stomach and ocular isozyme of aldehyde dehydrogenase (AHD-4) were observed among inbred strains of mice. The phenotypes were inherited in a normal mendelian fashion, with two alleles showing codominant expression at a single locus (Ahd-4). Linkage data indicated that Ahd-4 is localized on chromosome 11 near Hba (alpha hemoglobin locus), and segregated independently of Adh-3, encoding the stomach and ocular isozyme of alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH-C2).
