microsomal epoxide hydrolase

Cat No.
EXWM-4006
Description
This is a key hepatic enzyme that is involved in the metabolism of numerous xenobiotics, such as 1,3-butadiene oxide, styrene oxide and the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon benzo[a]pyrene 4,5-oxide. In a series of oxiranes with a lipophilic substituent of sufficient size (styrene oxides), monosubstituted as well as 1,1- and cis-1,2-disubstituted oxiranes serve as substrates or inhibitors of the enzyme. However, trans-1,2-disubstituted, tri-and tetra-substituted oxiranes are not substrates. The reaction involves the formation of an hydroxyalkyl-enzyme intermediate. In vertebrates, five epoxide-hydrolase enzymes have been identified to date: EC 3.3.2.6 (leukotriene-A4 hydrolase), EC 3.3.2.7 (hepoxilin-epoxide hydrolase), EC 3.3.2.9 (microsomal epoxide hydrolase), EC 3.3.2.10 (soluble epoxide hydrolase) and EC 3.3.2.11 (cholesterol-5,6-oxide hydrolase).
