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 gene is part of a cluster of cytochrome P450 genes on chromosome 1p33. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for CYP4Z1 Gene
CYP4Z1 (Cytochrome P450, Family 4, Subfamily Z, Polypeptide 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Biological oxidations and Cytochrome P450 - arranged by substrate type. 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.
