CYP4F11 16-hydroxylates 3OH-PALM
Species Homo sapiens
Long-chain 3-hydroxy fatty acids (3OHFAs) are omega-hydroxylated to form 3-hydroxydicarboxylic acid (3OHDCAs) precursors in human liver. These products may be implicated in pathological states where fatty acid mobilzation or impairment of mitochondrial fatty acid beta-oxidation increases 3-OHFA levels. CYP4A11, an orphan P450, has been shown to 18- and 16-hydroxylate 3-hydroxystearate and 3-hydroxypalmitate (3OH-PALM) respectively to omega-hydroxylated precursors; the latter is shown here (Dhar et al. 2008).
