CYP26B1 Antibody (C-term)

Purified Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody (Pab)

  • WB - CYP26B1 Antibody (C-term) AP7994b
    Western blot analysis of anti-CYP26B1 Antibody (C-term) (Cat.#AP7994b) in 293 cell line lysates (35ug/lane). CYP26B1(arrow) was detected using the purified Pab.
  • IHC-P - CYP26B1 Antibody (C-term) AP7994b
    Formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded human brain tissue reacted with CYP26B1 antibody (C-term), which was peroxidase-conjugated to the secondary antibody, followed by DAB staining. This data demonstrates the use of this antibody for immunohistochemistry; clinical relevance has not been evaluated.
  • WB - CYP26B1 Antibody (C-term) AP7994b
    Western blot analysis of CYP26B1 (arrow) using rabbit polyclonal CYP26B1 Antibody (C-term) (Cat. #AP7994b). 293 cell lysates (2 ug/lane) either nontransfected (Lane 1) or transiently transfected (Lane 2) with the CYP26B1 gene.

Protein Information
Name CYP26B1
Synonyms CYP26A2, P450RAI2
Function Involved in the metabolism of retinoic acid (RA), rendering this classical morphogen inactive through oxidation. Involved in the specific inactivation of all-trans-retinoic acid (all-trans-RA), with a preference for the following substrates: all-trans-RA > 9-cis-RA > 13-cis-RA. Generates several hydroxylated forms of RA, including 4-OH-RA, 4-oxo-RA, and 18-OH- RA. Esential for postnatal survival. Plays a central role in germ cell development: acts by degrading RA in the developing testis, preventing STRA8 expression, thereby leading to delay of meiosis. Required for the maintenance of the undifferentiated state of male germ cells during embryonic development in Sertoli cells, inducing arrest in G0 phase of the cell cycle and preventing meiotic entry. Plays a role in skeletal development, both at the level of patterning and in the ossification of bone and the establishment of some synovial joints.
Cellular Location Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Peripheral membrane protein Microsome membrane; Peripheral membrane protein
Tissue Location Highly expressed in brain, particularly in the cerebellum and pons.

CYP26B1 is a member of the cytochrome P450 superfamily of enzymes. The cytochrome P450 proteins are monooxygenases that catalyze many reactions involved in drug metabolism and the synthesis of cholesterol, steroids and other lipids. The enzyme encoded by this gene is involved in the specific inactivation of all-trans-retinoic acid to hydroxylated forms, such as 4-oxo-, 4-OH-, and 18-OH-all-trans-retinoic acid.
