|CYP4 5 subfamilies, 9 genes, 2 pseudogenes
(fatty acid, or arachidonic acid, metabolism) 4A9 an artefact.
|CYP4A11||The main human fatty acid omega hydroxylase.|
|CYP4B1||(may mediate corneal angiogenesis and inflammation by forming 12(R) HETE etc. in response to corneal hypoxia)||(present in placenta)|
|CYP4F2||The principal catalyst of 20-HETE formation; (? omega hydroxylates and thus inactivates leukotriene B4 : the main disposal mechanism for LTB4 : see also 4F3);|
|CYP4F3||4F3A breaks down LTB4 in leukocytes; 4F3B is found in liver but not leukocytes: the two are formed by alternative splicing.|
|CYP4F8||Forms 19R-hydroxyprostaglandins in seminal vesicles|
