Official Full Name cytochrome P450, family 2, subfamily C, polypeptide 8
Background 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. This protein localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum and its expression is induced by phenobarbital. The enzyme is known to metabolize many xenobiotics, including the anticonvulsive drug mephenytoin, benzo(a)pyrene, 7-ethyoxycoumarin, and the anti-cancer drug taxol. This gene is located within a cluster of cytochrome P450 genes on chromosome 10q24. Several transcript variants encoding a few different isoforms have been found for this gene.

    CYP2C8 has several biochemical functions, for example, (R)-limonene 6-monooxygenase activity, (S)-limonene 6-monooxygenase activity, (S)-limonene 7-monooxygenase activity. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by CYP2C8 itself. We selected most functions CYP2C8 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with CYP2C8. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
