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. The expression pattern of a similar rat protein suggests that this protein may be involved in neurovascular function in the brain. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for CYP4X1 Gene
CYP4X1 (Cytochrome P450, Family 4, Subfamily X, Polypeptide 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Circadian entrainment and Biological oxidations. GO annotations related to this gene include iron ion binding and oxidoreductase activity, acting on paired donors, with incorporation or reduction of molecular oxygen. An important paralog of this gene is CYP4F12.
