Summary
Enables epoxide hydrolase activity. Involved in several processes, including cholesterol homeostasis; epoxide metabolic process; and regulation of cholesterol metabolic process. Predicted to be located in cytosol. Predicted to be active in peroxisome. Is expressed in several structures, including eye; heart; integumental system; nervous system; and urinary system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in coronary artery disease; familial hypercholesterolemia; and hypertension. Orthologous to human EPHX2 (epoxide hydrolase 2).

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (3) differs in the 5' UTR, lacks an in-frame portion of the 5' coding region, and initiates translation at an alternate start codon, compared to variant 1. This variant is considered to be 5' complete based on evidence from PMID: 15601917. The encoded isoform (c) contains a distinct N-terminus and is shorter than isoform a.
