Official Full Name
Homo sapiens cytochrome P450, family 2, subfamily S, polypeptid DNA.
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 protein localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum. In rodents, the homologous protein has been shown to metabolize certain carcinogens; however, the specific function of the human protein has not been determined.
Synonyms
CYP2S1; cytochrome P450, family 2, subfamily S, polypeptide 1; cytochrome P450, subfamily IIS, polypeptide 1; cytochrome P450 2S1; CYPIIS1; cytochrome P540, subfamily IIS, polypeptide 1; cytochrome P450 family member predicted from ESTs
