cholest-5-ene-3beta,25/26-diol,[NADPH-hemoprotein reductase]:oxygen oxidoreductase (7alpha-hydroxylating)
A P-450 (heme-thiolate) protein. Unlike EC, 24-hydroxycholesterol 7alpha-monooxygenase, which is specific for its oxysterol substrate, this enzyme can also metabolize the oxysterols 24,25-epoxycholesterol, 22-hydroxycholesterol and 24-hydroxycholesterol, but to a lesser extent [2]. The direct electron donor to the enzyme is EC, NADPH---hemoprotein reductase.
