Gene: Cyp2c79 (cytochrome P450, family 2, subfamily c, polypeptide 79) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Cyp2c79
Name: cytochrome P450, family 2, subfamily c, polypeptide 79
RGD ID: 1308166
Description: Predicted to enable caffeine oxidase activity and monooxygenase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including icosanoid metabolic process; lipid hydroxylation; and retinoic acid metabolic process. Predicted to be located in intracellular membrane-bounded organelle and plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in end stage renal disease and renal hypertension. Orthologous to human CYP2C8 (cytochrome P450 family 2 subfamily C member 8); PARTICIPATES IN acetylsalicylic acid pharmacodynamics pathway; antipyrine drug pathway; arachidonic acid metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; acrylamide.
Type: protein-coding
Previously known as: Cyp2c65; cytochrome P450, family 2, subfamily c, polypeptide 65; LOC293985
