Symbol: Cyp26a1
Name: cytochrome P450, family 26, subfamily a, polypeptide 1
Description: ENCODES a protein that exhibits oxidoreductase activity, acting on paired donors, with incorporation or reduction of molecular oxygen, NAD(P)H as one donor, and incorporation of one atom of oxygen (ortholog); retinoic acid 4-hydroxylase activity (ortholog); retinoic acid binding (ortholog); INVOLVED IN response to retinoic acid; response to vitamin A; anterior/posterior pattern specification (ortholog); PARTICIPATES IN retinoic acid metabolic pathway; retinol metabolic pathway; vitamin A deficiency pathway; ASSOCIATED WITH adenocarcinoma (ortholog); Adenomatous Polyposis Coli (ortholog); Barrett esophagus (ortholog); INTERACTS WITH 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 2,4-dinitrotoluene; 2,6-dinitrotoluene
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: Cyp26; cytochrome P450, 26, retinoic acid; retinoic acid hydrolase; retinoic acid hydroxylase
