DESCRIPTION
Also known as CP4V2_RAT, Cyp4v2, Cyp4v3. Omega-hydroxylase that oxidizes medium-chain saturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids, and which plays a role in fatty acid and steroid metabolism in the eye. Catalyzes the omega-hydroxylation of medium-chain saturated fatty acids such as laurate, myristate and palmitate in an NADPH-dependent pathway. The substrate specificity is higher for myristate > laurate > palmitate (C14>C16>C12). Acts as a polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids hydroxylase by mediating oxidation of docosahexaenoate (DHA) to 22-hydroxydocosahexaenoate. Also produces some 21-hydroxydocosahexaenoate. Also converts eicosapentaenoate (EPA) to 20-hydroxyeicosapentaenoate (20-OH-EPA).
