(24R)-cholest-5-ene-3beta,24-diol,NADPH:oxygen oxidoreductase (7alpha-hydroxylating)
A P-450 heme-thiolate protein that is found in liver microsomes and in ciliary non-pigmented epithelium [2]. The enzyme is specific for (24S)-cholest-5-ene-3beta,24-diol, which is formed mostly in the brain by EC, cholesterol 24-hydroxylase. The direct electron donor to the enzyme is EC, NADPH---hemoprotein reductase.
