adrenodoxin Essential for the synthesis of various steroid hormones. Participates in the reduction of mitochondrial cytochrome P450 for steroidogenesis. Transfers electrons from adrenodoxin reductase to CYP11A1, a cytochrome P450 that catalyzes cholesterol side-chain cleavage. Does not form a ternary complex with adrenodoxin reductase and CYP11A1 but shuttles between the two enzymes to transfer electrons. Belongs to the adrenodoxin/putidaredoxin family. Highest levels in the adrenal gland (at protein level). Also detected in kidney and testis (at protein level). Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
