CYP7B1 Antibody (Center)

Purified Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody (Pab)

  • IF - CYP7B1 Antibody (Center) AP8786c
    Confocal immunofluorescent analysis of CYP7B1 Antibody (Center) (Cat. #AP8786c) with Hela cell followed by Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit lgG (green). DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclear (blue).
  • WB - CYP7B1 Antibody (Center) AP8786c
    Western blot analysis of CYP7B1 Antibody (Center) (Cat. #AP8786c) in Hela cell line lysates (35ug/lane). CYP7B1 (arrow) was detected using the purified Pab.
  • IHC-P - CYP7B1 Antibody (Center) AP8786c
    Formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded human brain tissue reacted with CYP7B1 Antibody (Center), which was peroxidase-conjugated to the secondary antibody, followed by DAB staining. This data demonstrates the use of this antibody for immunohistochemistry; clinical relevance has not been evaluated.
  • FC - CYP7B1 Antibody (Center) AP8786c
    CYP7B1 Antibody (Center) (Cat. #AP8786c) flow cytometric analysis of Hela cells (bottom histogram) compared to a negative control cell (top histogram).FITC-conjugated goat-anti-rabbit secondary antibodies were used for the analysis.

Protein Information
Name CYP7B1 {ECO:0000303|PubMed:24491228, ECO:0000312|HGNC:HGNC:2652}
Function A cytochrome P450 monooxygenase involved in the metabolism of endogenous oxysterols and steroid hormones, including neurosteroids (PubMed:10588945, PubMed:24491228). Mechanistically, uses molecular oxygen inserting one oxygen atom into a substrate, and reducing the second into a water molecule, with two electrons provided by NADPH via cytochrome P450 reductase (CPR; NADPH-ferrihemoprotein reductase) (PubMed:10588945, PubMed:24491228). Catalyzes the hydroxylation of carbon hydrogen bonds of steroids with a preference for 7-alpha position (PubMed:10588945, PubMed:24491228). Usually metabolizes steroids carrying a hydroxy group at position 3, functioning as a 3- hydroxy steroid 7-alpha hydroxylase (PubMed:24491228). Hydroxylates oxysterols, including 25-hydroxycholesterol and (25R)-cholest-5-ene- 3beta,26-diol toward 7-alpha hydroxy derivatives, which may be transported to the liver and converted to bile acids (PubMed:9802883, PubMed:10588945). Via its product 7-alpha,25-dihydroxycholesterol, a ligand for the chemotactic G protein-coupled receptor GPR183/EBI2, regulates B cell migration in germinal centers of lymphoid organs, thus guiding efficient maturation of plasma B cells and overall antigen- specific humoral immune response (By similarity). 7-alpha hydroxylates neurosteroids, including 3beta-hydroxyandrost-5-en-17-one (dehydroepiandrosterone) and pregnenolone, both involved in hippocampus-associated memory and learning (PubMed:24491228). Metabolizes androstanoids toward 6- or 7-alpha hydroxy derivatives (PubMed:24491228).
Cellular Location Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Microsome membrane; Multi- pass membrane protein
Tissue Location Widely expressed. Expressed in brain, testis, ovary, prostate, liver, colon, kidney, small intestine, thymus and spleen.

CYP7B1 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 endoplasmic reticulum membrane protein catalyzes the first reaction in the cholesterol catabolic pathway of extrahepatic tissues, which converts cholesterol to bile acids. This enzyme likely plays a minor role in total bile acid synthesis, but may also be involved in the development of atherosclerosis, neurosteroid metabolism and sex hormone synthesis.
