Summaries for DHCR24 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DHCR24 Gene

  • This gene encodes a flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD)-dependent oxidoreductase which catalyzes the reduction of the delta-24 double bond of sterol intermediates during cholesterol biosynthesis. The protein contains a leader sequence that directs it to the endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Missense mutations in this gene have been associated with desmosterolosis. Also, reduced expression of the gene occurs in the temporal cortex of Alzheimer disease patients and overexpression has been observed in adrenal gland cancer cells. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for DHCR24 Gene

DHCR24 (24-Dehydrocholesterol Reductase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DHCR24 include Desmosterolosis and Restrictive Dermopathy, Lethal. Among its related pathways are Terpenoid backbone biosynthesis and cholesterol biosynthesis III (via desmosterol). Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include enzyme binding and flavin adenine dinucleotide binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DHCR24 Gene

  • Catalyzes the reduction of the Delta-24 double bond of sterol intermediates. Protects cells from oxidative stress by reducing caspase 3 activity during apoptosis induced by oxidative stress. Also protects against amyloid-beta peptide-induced apoptosis.

Tissue specificity: Highly expressed in brain and adrenal gland with moderate expression in liver, lung, spleen, prostate and spinal cord. Low expression in heart, uterus and prostate. Undetectable in blood cells. In the brain, strongly expressed in cortical regions, substantia nigra, caudate nucleus, hippocampus, medulla oblongata and pons. In brains affected by Alzheimer disease, expression in the inferior temporal lobe is substantially lower than in the frontal cortex.
