Gene: Cyp11a1 (cytochrome P450, family 11, subfamily a, polypeptide 1) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Cyp11a1
Name: cytochrome P450, family 11, subfamily a, polypeptide 1
Description: Exhibits cholesterol binding activity and cholesterol monooxygenase (side-chain-cleaving) activity; involved in several processes, including animal organ development, cellular response to cytokine stimulus, and cellular response to growth factor stimulus; localizes to the mitochondrial crista and perikaryon; biomarker of several diseases, including glucose metabolism disease (multiple), hypertension, hypogonadism, nephrosis, and sciatic neuropathy; orthologous to human CYP11A1 (cytochrome P450 family 11 subfamily A member 1); PARTICIPATES IN 11-beta-hydroxylase deficiency pathway; 17-alpha-hydroxylase deficiency pathway; 21-alpha-hydroxylase deficiency pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-pilocarpine; (-)-citrinin; (S)-nicotine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
