Technical Data
CYP26A1, ID (Cytochrome P450, Family 26, Subfamily A, Polypeptide 1, Cytochrome P450, 26A1, Retinoic Acid-metabolizing Cytochrome, Cytochrome P450 Retinoic Acid-Inactivating 1, Cytochrome P450RAI, hP450RAI, Retinoic Acid 4-hydroxylase, CYP26, P450RAI1)
CYP26A1 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 endoplasmic reticulum protein acts on retinoids, including all-trans-retinoic acid (RA), with both 4-hydroxylation and 18-hydroxylation activities. This enzyme regulates the cellular level of retinoic acid which is involved in regulation of gene expression in both embryonic and adult tissues.

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

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:1,000
