Cytochrome P450, family 46, subfamily A, polypeptide 1

CYP46A1, CYP46, cholesterol 24-hydroxylase, CP-46
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 endoplasmic reticulum protein is expressed in the brain, where it converts cholesterol to 24S-hydroxycholesterol. While cholesterol cannot pass the blood-brain barrier, 24S-hydroxycholesterol can be secreted in the brain into the circulation to be returned to the liver for catabolism.

Endogenous 24S-hydroxycholesterol modulates NMDAR-mediated function in hippocampal slices.
Mennerick et al., Washington, D.C., United States. In J Neurophysiol, Jan 2016
In CYP46A1(-/-) (knockout; KO) slices where endogenous 24S-HC is greatly reduced, NMDAR tone, measured as NMDAR to α-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolepropionic acid receptor (AMPAR) excitatory post-synaptic current (EPSC) ratio, was reduced.
Cholesterol 24-hydroxylase defect is implicated in memory impairments associated with Alzheimer-like Tau pathology.
Cartier et al., Paris, France. In Hum Mol Genet, Dec 2015
Brain cholesterol is synthesized in situ and cannot cross the blood-brain barrier: to be exported from the central nervous system into the blood circuit, excess cholesterol must be converted to 24S-hydroxycholesterol by the cholesterol 24-hydroxylase encoded by the CYP46A1 gene.
Subpath analysis of each subtype of head and neck cancer based on the regulatory relationship between miRNAs and biological pathways.
Xing et al., Jinan, China. In Oncol Rep, Oct 2015
Our data suggest that human papillomavirus (HPV) is positively correlated with HNSCC in subtype 2. Several miRNAs (miRLet-7A, miR-1, miR-206, miR-153, miR-519A and miR-506) and their target genes (CYP46A1, BPNT1, MCM7 and COL5A1) are crucial for HNSCC prevention via different pathways and may provide further knowledge of the mechanisms involved in the progression of HNSCC.
