CYP24A1 is the cytochrome P450 component of the 25-hydroxyvitamin D(3)-24-hydroxylase enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of 25-hydroxyvitamin D(3) (25-OH-D(3)) and 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3) (1,25-(OH)(2)D(3)) into 24-hydroxylated products, which constitute the degradation of the vitamin D molecule. This review focuses on recent data in the CYP24A1 field, including biochemical, physiological and clinical developments. Notable among these are: the first crystal structure for rat CYP24A1; mutagenesis studies which change the regioselectivity of the enzyme; and the finding that natural inactivating mutations of CYP24A1 cause the genetic disease idiopathic infantile hypercalcemia (IIH). The review also discusses the emerging correlation between rising serum phosphate/FGF-23 levels and increased CYP24A1 expression in chronic kidney disease, which in turn underlies accelerated degradation of both serum 25-OH-D(3) and 1,25-(OH)(2)D(3) in this condition. This review concludes by evaluating the potential clinical utility of blocking this enzyme with CYP24A1 inhibitors in various disease states.

Background: Pharmacological therapy may be useful in the treatment of moderate to severe hypercalcemia in patients with infantile hypercalcemia-1 (HCINF1) due to pathogenic variants in the cytochrome P450 24 subfamily A member 1 (CYP24A1). Rifampin is an antituberculosis drug that is a potent inducer of cytochrome P450 3 subfamily A member 4 (CYP3A4), involved in an alternative catabolic pathway of vitamin D. The efficacy of rifampin in improving hypercalcemia was previously reported but many questions remain on the long-term efficacy and safety. Aim of the study is to test the long-term efficacy and safety of rifampin in a patient with HCINF1.
Methods: We report clinical, biochemical and imaging features of a 23-year-old man affected by HCINF1 with moderate hypercalcemia (12.9 mg/dL), symptomatic nephrolithiasis, nephrocalcinosis and impaired kidney function (eGFR 60 mL/min/1.73 m2) treated with rifampin for an overall period of 24 months. Kidney, liver and adrenal function were evaluated at every follow-up visit.
Results: In 2 months, rifampin induced a normalization of serum calcium (9.6 mg/dL) associated with an improvement of kidney function (eGFR 92 mL/min/1.73 m2) stable during the treatment. After 15 months, rifampin was temporally withdrawn because of asthenia, unrelated to impairment of adrenal function. After three months, the timing of drug administration was shifted from the morning to the evening, obtaining the remission of asthenia. At the end of follow-up, the nephrolithiasis disappeared and the nephrocalcinosis was stable.
Conclusions: Rifampin could represent an effective choice to induce a stable reduction of calcium levels in patients with HCINF1, with a good safety profile.

25-Hydroxyvitamin D-24-hydroxylase (CYP24A1): its important role in the degradation of vitamin D.
Anticancer Agents Med Chem. 2014 Jan;14(1):97-108.

Increasing evidence has accumulated to suggest that vitamin D may reduce the risk of cancer through its biologically active metabolite, 1α,25(OH)2D3, which inhibits proliferation and angiogenesis, induces differentiation and apoptosis, and regulates many other cellular functions. Thus, it is plausible to assume that rapid clearance of 1α,25(OH)2D3 by highly expressed CYP24A1 could interrupt the normal physiology of cells and might be one cause of cancer initiation and progression. In fact, enhancement of CYP24A1 expression has been reported in literature for many cancers. Based on these findings, CYP24A1-specific inhibitors and vitamin D analogs which are resistant to CYP24A1-dependent catabolism might be useful for cancer treatment. CYP24A1-specific inhibitor VID400, which is an azole compound, markedly enhanced and prolonged the antiproliferative activity of 1α,25(OH)2D3 in the human keratinocytes. Likewise, CYP24A1-resistant analogs such as 2α-(3-hydroxypropoxy)-1α,25(OH)2D3 (O2C3) and its C2-epimer ED-71 (Eldecalcitol), and 19nor- 2α-(3-hydroxypropyl)-1α,25(OH)2D3 (MART-10) showed potent biological effects. Our in vivo studies using rats revealed that MART-10 had a low calcemic effect, which is a suitable property as an anticancer drug. Much lower affinity of MART-10 for vitamin D binding protein (DBP) as compared with 1α,25(OH)2D3 may be related to its more potent cellular activities.
Based on these results, we conclude that
- (1) high affinity for VDR,
- (2) resistance to CYP24A1-dependent catabolism,
- (3) low affinity for DBP, and
- (4) low calcemic effect
may be required for designing potent vitamin D analogs for cancer treatment. PMID: 23869781

Omega-3 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids Normalize the Functions of Mitochondria, Pro- and Antioxidant Enzymes of, and Cytochrome P450 2E1 Expression after Isoproterenol-Induced Myocardial Injury
International Journal of Physiology and Pathophysiology, DOI: 10.1615/IntJPhysPathophys.v8.i2.40 , pages 131-139
We studied the effect of dietary ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (ω-3 PUFA) on the subsarcolemmal and interfibrillar mitochondrial fractions of rat myocardium, changes in expression of cytochrome P450 (CYP2E1), and the activity of pro-antioxidant enzymes after isoproterenol-induced myocardial injury. It has been found that ω-3 PUFA (Epadol 0.1 ml/100 g for 4 weeks) significantly reduces the swelling of the subsarcolemmal and interfibrillar mitochondrial fractions by 65.52% and 54.84%, respectively, indicating a decrease in damage to the mitochondrial function during isoproterenol-induced injury (two daily subcutaneous injections of isoproterenol at the dose of 60 mg/kg). In case of isoproterenol-induced myocardial injury, the use of ω-3 PUFAs prevents a decrease in the activity of antioxidant enzymes, namely catalase and superoxide dismutase (2.65 and 7.1 times, respectively). We have revealed that the development of oxidative stress after isoproterenol-induced myocardial injury can be triggered by a significant increase in the expression of cytochrome P450 2E1 (73.3%), and applying of ω-3 PUFAs prevents such changes.
