Gene: CYP7A1 (cytochrome P450 family 7 subfamily A member 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CYP7A1
Name: cytochrome P450 family 7 subfamily A member 1
Description: Exhibits cholesterol 7-alpha-monooxygenase activity. Involved in bile acid biosynthetic process; cellular response to glucose stimulus; and regulation of bile acid biosynthetic process. Predicted to localize to the intracellular membrane-bounded organelle.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
