Gene: CYP11B2 (cytochrome P450 family 11 subfamily B member 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CYP11B2
Name: cytochrome P450 family 11 subfamily B member 2
Description: Exhibits heme binding activity and steroid 11-beta-monooxygenase activity. Involved in several processes, including monovalent inorganic cation homeostasis; regulation of blood volume by renal aldosterone; and steroid hormone biosynthetic process. Localizes to the mitochondrion. Implicated in diabetes mellitus (multiple); dilated cardiomyopathy 1H; hypertension (multiple); and primary hyperaldosteronism. Biomarker of adrenal cortical adenoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
