|Other Names||Cytochrome P450 4F8, CYPIVF8, CYP4F8|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7890b was selected from the C-term region of human CYP4F8. 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||Hydroxylates arachidonic acid (20:4n-6) to (18R)- hydroxyarachidonate. Shows little activity against prostaglandin (PG) D2, PGE1, PGE2, PGF2alpha, and leukotriene B4. Catalyzes omega-2 and omega-3-hydroxylation of PGH1 and PGH2. Catalyzes epoxidation of 4,7,10,13,16,19-(Z)-docosahexaenoic acid (22:6n-3) and 7,10,13,16,19-(Z)-docosapentaenoic acid (22:5n-3) and omega-3- hydroxylation of 4,7,10,13,16-(Z)-docosapentaenoic acid (22:5n-6). Catalyzes hydroxylation of PGI2 and carbaprostacyclin.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass membrane protein Microsome membrane|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in the epithelium of seminal vesicles, in renal cortex, in adult and fetal liver, in epidermis, in corneal epithelium, in sweat glands, hair follicles, epithelial linings of the ampulla of vas deferens and of the stomach and small intestine, as well as in the transitional epithelium of the bladder and ureter (at protein level). In the epidermis, expressed from the basal cell to the granular cell layers. In the corneal epithelium, expressed in all cell layers. Also detected in prostate. Up-regulated in the epidermis of psoriatic lesions|

CYP4F8 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 functions as a 19-hydroxylase of prostaglandins in seminal vesicles.
