The CYP24A1 protein is 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. CYP24A1 is involved in maintaining calcium homeostasis and catalyzes the NADPH-dependent 24-hydroxylation of calcidiol (25-hydroxyvitamin D3) and calcitriol (1-alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3). Several different isoforms exist, encoded by alternatively spliced transcript variants.
