|Other Names||Cytochrome P450 4V2, 11413-, Docosahexaenoic acid omega-hydroxylase CYP4V2, CYP4V2|
|Target/Specificity||This CYP4V2 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 496-525 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human CYP4V2.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||CYP4V2 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Omega-hydroxylase that oxidizes medium-chain saturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids, and which plays a role in fatty acid and steroid metabolism in the eye (PubMed:19661213, PubMed:22772592). Catalyzes the omega- hydroxylation of medium-chain saturated fatty acids such as laurate, myristate and palmitate in an NADPH-dependent pathway. The substrate specificity is higher for myristate > laurate > palmitate (C14>C16>C12) (PubMed:19661213). Acts as a polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids hydroxylase by mediating oxidation of docosahexaenoate (DHA) to 22-hydroxydocosahexaenoate (PubMed:22772592). Also produces some 21-hydroxydocosahexaenoate. Also converts eicosapentaenoate (EPA) to 20- hydroxyeicosapentaenoate (20-OH-EPA) (PubMed:22772592).|

This gene encodes a member of the cytochrome P450 hemethiolate protein superfamily which are involved in oxidizing various substrates in the metabolic pathway. It is implicated in the metabolism of fatty acid precursors into n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids.
