Goat anti Cholesterol 24 hydroxylase antibody recognizes cholesterol 24-hydroxylase (CYP46A1), a ~58 kDa member of the Cytochrome P450 family, expressed in the brain. CYP46A1 converts cholesterol into the biologically active oxysterol and 24(S)-hydroxycholesterol, in the first step of the enzymatic degradation of cholesterol in the brain. CYP46A1 is also thought to play a role in the metabolism of neurosteroids and drugs that can cross the blood-brain barrier and are targeted to the central nervous system.

P450 enzymes are divided into two groups: steroidogenic and xenobiotic. The latter group is comprised of three families 1, 2 and 3. The xenobiotic p450's are involved in most oxidative drug metabolism.
