|Target/Specificity||ABD10969 recognises cholesterol 24-hydroxylase (CYP46A1), a 58 kDa member of the Cytochrome P450 family, expressed in the brain. CYP46A1 converts cholesterol into the biologically active oxysterol and 24(S)-hydroxycholesterol, in the first step of the enzymatic degradation of cholesterol in the brain. CYP46A1 is also thought to play a role in the metabolism of neurosteroids and drugs that can cross the blood-brain barrier and are targeted to the central nervous system.P450 enzymes are divided into two groups: steroidogenic and xenobiotic. The latter group is comprised of three families 1, 2 and 3. The xenobiotic p450's are involved in most oxidative drug metabolism. Work in this area is ongoing but studies suggest that all known drug metabolism is mediated by family members: CYP3A, CYP2D6, CYP1A2, CYP2C9/10, CYP2C19 and CYP2E1.|
