The following CYP27B1 gene sequences were retrieved from the NCBI Reference Sequence Database (RefSeq). These sequences represent the protein coding region of the CYP27B1 gene which is encoded by the open reading frame (ORF) sequence. ORF sequences can be delivered in our standard vector, pcDNA3.1+/C-(K)DYK or the vector of your choice as an expression/transfection-ready ORF clone. Not the clone you want?

Summary: This gene 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.
The protein encoded by this gene localizes to the inner
mitochondrial membrane where it hydroxylates 25-hydroxyvitamin D3
at the 1alpha position. This reaction synthesizes
1alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3, the active form of vitamin D3, which
binds to the vitamin D receptor and regulates calcium metabolism.
Thus this enzyme regulates the level of biologically active vitamin
D and plays an important role in calcium homeostasis. Mutations in
this gene can result in vitamin D-dependent rickets type I.
