Gene : CYB5A Homo sapiens

Name  ? cytochrome b5 type A Cytological Location  18q22.3
Brief Description  cytochrome b5 type A
Description  The protein encoded by this gene is a membrane-bound cytochrome that reduces ferric hemoglobin (methemoglobin) to ferrous hemoglobin, which is required for stearyl-CoA-desaturase activity. Defects in this gene are a cause of type IV hereditary methemoglobinemia. Three transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2010]
