Olfactory marker protein (OMP) is a ubiquitous, cytoplasmic protein found in mature olfactory receptor neurons of all vertebrates. Electrophysiological and behavioral studies demonstrate that it is a modulator of the olfactory signal transduction pathway. Here, we demonstrate that the solution structure of OMP, as determined by NMR studies, is a single(More)
CYP27A1 is a mitochondrial cytochrome P450 which can hydroxylate vitamin D3 and cholesterol at carbons 25 and 26, respectively. The product of vitamin D3 metabolism, 25-hydroxyvitamin D3, is the precursor to the biologically active hormone, 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3. CYP27A1 is attached to the inner mitochondrial membrane and substrates appear to reach the(More)
