CYP3A7 is only expressed in fetal liver and not in adults. It has lower biotransformation capability than other members of the CYP3A family such as 3A4 or 3A5 but possesses a similar broad specificity. CYP3A7 plays a major role in fetal steroid hydroxylation, an example being the 6beta-hydroxylation of testosterone.
