QuickView for CYP11A (gene)


Gene Symbol:
CYP11A1 Homo sapiens Homo sapiens
Full name:
cytochrome P450 family 11 subfamily A member 1
Synonyms:
CYP11A, CYPXIA1, P450SCC, cholesterol side-chain cleavage enzyme, mitochondrial, cholesterol 20-22 desmolase, cholesterol monooxygenase (side-chain cleaving), cytochrome P450 11A1, cytochrome P450 family 11 subfamily A polypeptide 1, cytochrome P450(scc), cytochrome P450, subfamily XIA (cholesterol side chain cleavage), steroid 20-22-lyase
Genomic Location:
Chr 15: 72417156-72447134
Description:
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 mitochondrial inner membrane and catalyzes the conversion of cholesterol to pregnen...
