Protein Information
Name BCO1 (HGNC:13815)
Function Symmetrically cleaves beta-carotene into two molecules of retinal. The reaction proceeds in three stages, epoxidation of the 15,15'-double bond, hydration of the double bond leading to ring opening, and oxidative cleavage of the diol formed.
Tissue Location Highly expressed in retinal pigment epithelium. Also expressed in kidney, testis, liver, brain, small intestine and colon.

Vitamin A metabolism is important for vital processes suchas vision, embryonic development, cell differentiation, andmembrane and skin protection. The protein encoded by this gene is akey enzyme in beta-carotene metabolism to vitamin A. It catalyzesthe oxidative cleavage of beta,beta-carotene into two retinalmolecules.
