Protein existenceInferred from homology

General annotation (Comments)

Function

Specifically catalyzes the 21-hydroxylation of steroids. Required for the adrenal synthesis of mineralocorticoids and glucocorticoids.

Catalytic activity

A C21 steroid + (reduced NADPH--hemoprotein reductase) + O2 = a 21-hydroxy-C(21)-steroid + (oxidized NADPH--hemoprotein reductase) + H2O.

Cofactor

Heme group By similarity.

Subcellular location

Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Microsome membrane; Peripheral membrane protein.

Domain

The leucine-rich hydrophobic amino acid N-terminal region probably helps to anchor the protein to the microsomal membrane.

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the cytochrome P450 family.
