  • Target

    • Function

      Plays a key role in retinoic acid metabolism. Acts on retinoids, including all-trans-retinoic acid (RA) and its stereoisomer 9-cis-RA. Capable of both 4-hydroxylation and 18-hydroxylation. Responsible for generation of several hydroxylated forms of RA, including 4-OH-RA, 4-oxo-RA and 18-OH-RA.
    • Tissue specificity

      Highest levels in adult liver, heart, pituitary gland, adrenal gland, placenta and regions of the brain.
    • Sequence similarities

      Belongs to the cytochrome P450 family.
    • Cellular localization

      Endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Microsome membrane.
