  • Function
    Catalyzes the formation of aromatic C18 estrogens from C19 androgens.
  • Tissue specificity
    Brain, placenta and gonads.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in CYP19A1 are a cause of aromatase excess syndrome (AEXS) [MIM:139300]; also known as familial gynecomastia. AEXS is characterized by an estrogen excess due to an increased aromatase activity.
    Defects in CYP19A1 are the cause of aromatase deficiency (AROD) [MIM:107910]. AROD is a rare disease in which fetal androgens are not converted into estrogens due to placental aromatase deficiency. Thus, pregnant women exhibit a hirsutism, which spontaneously resolves after post-partum. At birth, female babies present with pseudohermaphroditism due to virilization of extern genital organs. In adult females, manifestations include delay of puberty, breast hypoplasia and primary amenorrhoea with multicystic ovaries.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the cytochrome P450 family.

Thank you for contacting us. We believe that the best practices are to give the customer as much data as possible about any product. Therefore, all data that we possess and may share publically concerning our products is listed on our website. This blocking peptide ab51924 is actually the immunogen of the anitibody ab18995.By its nature the antibody should block to the immunogen preferentially. I am unsure why the customer in the Abreview was unable to use this effectively but would think that it may be that not enough peptide was used or that the incubation period was too short. If you wish to know more about this, I have included our blocking peptide protcol. I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
