Gene: Cyp7a1 (cytochrome P450 family 7 subfamily A member 1) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Cyp7a1
Name: cytochrome P450 family 7 subfamily A member 1
RGD ID: 2482
Description: Enables cholesterol 7-alpha-monooxygenase activity. Involved in several processes, including bile acid biosynthetic process; cellular response to cholesterol; and regulation of lipid biosynthetic process. Located in intracellular membrane-bounded organelle. Biomarker of alcoholic hepatitis; cholestasis; extrahepatic cholestasis; and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis. Orthologous to human CYP7A1 (cytochrome P450 family 7 subfamily A member 1); PARTICIPATES IN bile acid signaling pathway; bile acid biosynthetic pathway; cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; (-)-epigallocatechin 3-gallate; (25R)-cholest-5-ene-3beta,26-diol.
Type: protein-coding
