|Other Names||Docosahexaenoic acid omega-hydroxylase CYP4F3, 20-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid synthase, 20-HETE synthase, 11413-, CYPIVF3, Cytochrome P450 4F3, Cytochrome P450-LTB-omega, Leukotriene-B(4) 20-monooxygenase 2, Leukotriene-B(4) omega-hydroxylase 2, CYP4F3, LTB4H|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP8646a was selected from the N-term region of human CYP4F3. 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||Isoform CYP4F3A: Catalyzes the omega-hydroxylation of leukotriene-B(4), a potent chemoattractant for polymorphonuclear leukocytes, it has low activity for arachidonic acid.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass membrane protein Microsome membrane; Single-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Isoform CYP4F3A is expressed in the polymorphonuclear leukocytes as well as leukocytes and bone marrow. Isoform CYP4F3B is selectively expressed in liver and kidney and is also the predominant CYP4F isoform in trachea and tissues of the gastrointestinal tract|

CYP4F3 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. The enzyme starts the process of inactivating and degrading leukotriene B4, a potent mediator of inflammation.
