In Pathways: bile acid biosynthesis, neutral pathway
This enzyme requires NADPH-cytochrome P450 reductase for its activity. It was assayed using the reductase, phospholipid and a NADPH regenerating system. Inclusion of cytochrome b5 enhanced the activity [Ishida92].
The level of this enzyme activity determines the relative amounts of cholate and chenodeoxycholate (or other species-specific bile acid) produced in the liver. The 12α hydroxylation leads to cholate biosynthesis (reviewed in [Russell03] and [Norlin07]).
This enzyme also catalyzes EC 220.127.116.11 (5β-cholestane-3α,7α-diol + NAD(P)H + oxygen + H+ → 5β-cholestane-3α,7α,12α-triol + NAD(P)+ + H2O) and has broad substrate specificity, although 7α-hydroxycholest-4-en-3-one was the more efficient substrate. Recombinant enzyme was also demonstrated to have these activities [Andersson98].
