Alternative Names BCO2Beta,beta-carotene 9',10'-oxygenase BCO2 antibodyBCDO2
Function Asymmetrically cleaves beta-carotene at the 9',10' double bond resulting in the formation of beta-apo-10'-carotenal and beta-ionone, Besides beta-carotene, lycopene is also oxidatively cleaved, The apocarotenals formed by this enzyme may be the precursors for the biosynthesis of retinoic acid or exert unknown physiological effects.
Cellular Localization Mitochondrion
Tissue Specificity Highly expressed in retinal pigment epithelium, also expressed in stomach, small intestine, liver, testis, kidney, adrenal gland, pancreas, heart, skeletal muscle and prostate (at protein level).
