Cytochrome P450, family 2, subfamily A, also known as CYP2A, is a human gene.[1]

The cytochrome P450 superfamily of enzymes are monooxygenases which catalyze many reactions involved in drug metabolism and synthesis of cholesterol, steroids and other lipids. The CYP2 gene cluster on chromosome 19q13.2 includes several genes and pseudogenes from the CYP2A, CYP2B, and CYP2F subfamilies.[1]
