cholesterol 25-hydroxylase


ENTREZID: 9023 | Type: Protein Coding | Map: 10q23.31

OMIM: 109770


Summary Entrez
This is an intronless gene that is involved in cholesterol and lipid metabolism. The encoded protein is a membrane protein and contains clusters of histidine residues essential for catalytic activity. Unlike most other sterol hydroxylases, this enzyme is a member of a small family of enzymes that utilize diiron cofactors to catalyze the hydroxylation of hydrophobic substrates.
