|Other Names||Cytochrome P450 4A11, 20-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid synthase, 20-HETE synthase, CYP4AII, CYPIVA11, Cytochrome P-450HK-omega, Cytochrome P450HL-omega, Fatty acid omega-hydroxylase, Lauric acid omega-hydroxylase, CYP4A11, CYP4A2|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7884a was selected from the N-term region of human CYP4A11. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Catalyzes the omega- and (omega-1)-hydroxylation of various fatty acids such as laurate, myristate and palmitate. Has little activity toward prostaglandins A1 and E1. Oxidizes arachidonic acid to 20-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (20-HETE).|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Microsome membrane; Peripheral membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Kidney and liver.|

CYP4A11 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 protein localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum and hydroxylates medium-chain fatty acids such as laurate and myristate.
