Technical Data
CYP11A1, NT (Cholesterol Side-chain Cleavage Enzyme, Mitochondrial, CYPXIA1, Cytochrome P450 11A1, CYPXIA1, Cytochrome P450(scc), Cholesterol Desmolase, CYP11A)
CYP11A1 is a member of the cytochrome P450 superfamily of enzymes. The cytochrome P450 proteins are monooxygenases which catalyze many reactions involved in drug metabolism and synthesis of cholesterol, steroids and other lipids. This protein localizes to the mitochondrial inner membrane and catalyzes the conversion of cholesterol to pregnenolone, the first and rate-limiting step in the synthesis of the steroid hormones.

Suitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
