Summaries for CYP2W1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CYP2W1 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. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for CYP2W1 Gene

CYP2W1 (Cytochrome P450 Family 2 Subfamily W Member 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Cytochrome P450 - arranged by substrate type. Gene Ontology (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 CYP2D6.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CYP2W1 Gene

  • Seems to have broad catalytic activity towards several chemicals, including polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon dihydrodiols and aromatic amines (PubMed:16551781, PubMed:24278521). Active also in the metabolism of indoline substrates and is able to activate aflatoxin B1 into cytotoxic products (PubMed:20805301). Furthermore, it seems to be involved in the oxydation of lysophospholipids and fatty acids (PubMed:22591743).
