Descriptor CYP2J2 del citocromo P450
Entry term(s) CYP2J2
araquidonato-epoxigenasa
araquidonato-oxigenasa del citocromo P-450
epoxigenasa del citocromo P-450
epoxigenasa del ácido araquidónico
epoxigenasa del ácido araquidónico dependiente de NADPH
Scope note: Enzima del citocromo P450 que interviene en la oxidación de ÁCIDOS GRASOS POLIINSATURADOS (AGPI) en epóxidos de AGPI que funcionan como potentes mediadores lipídicos. Esta enzima, codificada por el gen CYP2J2, metaboliza el ÁCIDO ARAQUIDÓNICO en ácidos epoxieicosatrienoicos (EET) que producen efectos biológicos tales como VASODILATACIÓN.

Scope note: A cytochrome P450 enzyme involved in oxidizing POLYUNSATURATED FATTY ACIDS (PUFA) to PUFA epoxides which function as potent lipid mediators. This enzyme, encoded by CYP2J2 gene, metabolizes ARACHIDONIC ACID to epoxyeicosatrienoic acids (EETs) which produce biological effects including VASODILATION.
