Background Information

BCMO1(Beta,beta-carotene 15,15'-monooxygenase) is also named as BCDO, BCDO1 and belongs to the carotenoid oxygenase family.The human BCMO1 cDNA encodes a 63-kDa protein with homologies to members of a large and diverse family of polyene chain oxidases and carotenoid cleavage enzymes.Although BCMO1 can be detected in several tissues, its expression is most pronounced in intestinal mucosa and liver(PMID:16504037).It catalyzes the central cleavage of β-carotene to all-trans retinal and is the key enzyme in the intestinal metabolism of carotenes to vitamin A.
