Gene: Cyp3a2 (cytochrome P450, family 3, subfamily a, polypeptide 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Cyp3a2
Name: cytochrome P450, family 3, subfamily a, polypeptide 2
Description: Exhibits demethylase activity and testosterone 6-beta-hydroxylase activity. Involved in drug metabolic process and oxidative demethylation. Predicted to localize to the endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Used to study anxiety disorder. Biomarker of cholestasis and end stage renal failure. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in chronic myeloid leukemia; essential hypertension; precursor B lymphoblastic lymphoma/leukemia; and precursor lymphoblastic lymphoma/leukemia. Orthologous to human CYP3A5 (cytochrome P450 family 3 subfamily A member 5); PARTICIPATES IN tamoxifen pharmacokinetics pathway; linoleic acid metabolic pathway; phase I biotransformation pathway via cytochrome P450; INTERACTS WITH (+)-alpha-tocopherol; (2-trans,6-trans)-farnesol; (S)-nicotine.
Type: protein-coding
