|Application ||FC, IHC-P, IF, WB, E|
|Calculated MW||58256 Da|
|Antigen Region||252-281 aa|
|Other Names||25-hydroxycholesterol 7-alpha-hydroxylase, Cytochrome P450 7B1, Oxysterol 7-alpha-hydroxylase, CYP7B1|
|Target/Specificity||This CYP7B1 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 252-281 amino acids from the Central region of human CYP7B1.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|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||CYP7B1 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Oxysterol 7alpha-hydroxylase that mediates formation of 7-alpha,25-dihydroxycholesterol (7-alpha,25-OHC) from 25- hydroxycholesterol (PubMed:10588945). Plays a key role in cell positioning and movement in lymphoid tissues: 7-alpha,25- dihydroxycholesterol (7-alpha,25-OHC) acts as a ligand for the G protein-coupled receptor GPR183/EBI2, a chemotactic receptor for a number of lymphoid cells (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Microsome membrane; Peripheral membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Brain, testis, ovary, prostate, liver, colon, kidney, and small intestine|

CYP7B1 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 membrane protein catalyzes the first reaction in the cholesterol catabolic pathway of extrahepatic tissues, which converts cholesterol to bile acids. This enzyme likely plays a minor role in total bile acid synthesis, but may also be involved in the development of atherosclerosis, neurosteroid metabolism and sex hormone synthesis.
