Immunoprecipitation of CYP4B1 transfected lysate using anti-CYP4B1 MaxPab rabbit polyclonal antibody and Protein A Magnetic Bead (U0007), and immunoblotted with CYP4B1 purified MaxPab mouse polyclonal antibody (B01P) (H00001580-B01P).
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. In rodents, the homologous protein has been shown to metabolize certain carcinogens; however, the specific function of the human protein has not been determined. Two transcript variants encoding slightly different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq
