Summaries for CYP4F8 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CYP4F8 Gene

  • This gene, CYP4F8, 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 and functions as a 19-hydroxylase of prostaglandins in seminal vesicles. This gene is part of a cluster of cytochrome P450 genes on chromosome 19. Another member of this family, CYP4F3, is approximately 18 kb away. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for CYP4F8 Gene

CYP4F8 (Cytochrome P450 Family 4 Subfamily F Member 8) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Phase II conjugation and Arachidonic acid metabolism. 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 CYP4F11.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CYP4F8 Gene

  • Hydroxylates arachidonic acid (20:4n-6) to (18R)-hydroxyarachidonate. Shows little activity against prostaglandin (PG) D2, PGE1, PGE2, PGF2alpha, and leukotriene B4. Catalyzes omega-2 and omega-3-hydroxylation of PGH1 and PGH2. Catalyzes epoxidation of 4,7,10,13,16,19-(Z)-docosahexaenoic acid (22:6n-3) and 7,10,13,16,19-(Z)-docosapentaenoic acid (22:5n-3) and omega-3-hydroxylation of 4,7,10,13,16-(Z)-docosapentaenoic acid (22:5n-6). Catalyzes hydroxylation of PGI2 and carbaprostacyclin.
