Official Full Name
cytochrome P450, family 26, subfamily C, polypeptide 1
Background
This gene encodes a member of the cytochrome P450 superfamily of enzymes. The cytochrome P450 proteins are monooxygenases which catalyze many reactions involved in drug metabolism and synthesis of cholesterol, steroids and other lipids. This enzyme is involved in the catabolism of all-trans- and 9-cis-retinoic acid, and thus contributes to the regulation of retinoic acid levels in cells and tissues. This gene is adjacent to a related gene on chromosome 10q23.33.
Synonyms
CYP26C1; cytochrome P450, family 26, subfamily C, polypeptide 1; cytochrome P450 26C1; FLJ45301; cyp26d1; cyp26b1l; retinoic acid catabolizing enzyme
