Summaries for CYP19A1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CYP19A1 Gene

  • 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 and catalyzes the last steps of estrogen biosynthesis. Mutations in this gene can result in either increased or decreased aromatase activity; the associated phenotypes suggest that estrogen functions both as a sex steroid hormone and in growth or differentiation. Alternative promoter use and alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants that have different tissue specificities. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2016]

GeneCards Summary for CYP19A1 Gene

CYP19A1 (Cytochrome P450 Family 19 Subfamily A Member 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CYP19A1 include Aromatase Deficiency and Aromatase Excess Syndrome. Among its related pathways are Integrated Breast Cancer Pathway and Ovarian steroidogenesis. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include iron ion binding and electron transfer activity.

Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Aromatase deficiency (AROD) [MIM:613546]: A rare disease in which fetal androgens are not converted into estrogens due to placental aromatase deficiency. Thus, pregnant women exhibit a hirsutism, which spontaneously resolves after post-partum. At birth, female babies present with pseudohermaphroditism due to virilization of extern genital organs. In adult females, manifestations include delay of puberty, breast hypoplasia and primary amenorrhoea with multicystic ovaries. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:24705274, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8265607, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8530621, ECO:0000269 PubMed:9211678}.
