Metabolite Identification
Common NameSecalciferol
DescriptionSecalciferol belongs to the class of organic compounds known as vitamin d and derivatives. Vitamin D and derivatives are compounds containing a secosteroid backbone, usually secoergostane or secocholestane. Secalciferol is considered to be a practically insoluble (in water) and relatively neutral molecule. Secalciferol has been found in human hepatic tissue tissue, and has also been primarily detected in urine. Within the cell, secalciferol is primarily located in the membrane (predicted from logP) and cytoplasm.

Enzymes

General function:
Involved in monooxygenase activity
Specific function:
Has a role in maintaining calcium homeostasis. Catalyzes the NADPH-dependent 24-hydroxylation of calcidiol (25-hydroxyvitamin D(3)) and calcitriol (1-alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3)). The enzyme can perform up to 6 rounds of hydroxylation of calcitriol leading to calcitroic acid. It also shows 23-hydroxylating activity leading to 1-alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3)-26,23-lactone as end product.
Gene Name:
