PrimePCR™ Template for Probe Assay: CYP1A1, Human
This gene CYP1A1 encodes 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 its expression is induced by some polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) some of which are found in cigarette smoke. The enzyme's endogenous substrate is unknown; however it is able to metabolize some PAHs to carcinogenic intermediates. The gene has been associated with lung cancer risk. A related family member CYP1A2 is located approximately 25 kb away from CYP1A1 on chromosome 15. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
