EPHX1

A gene on chromosome 1q42.1 that encodes epoxide hydrolase-1. Epoxide hydrolases are critical biotransformation enzymes that activate and detoxify epoxides by breaking down aromatic compounds to dihydrodiols, which can be conjugated and excreted from the body.
 
Molecular pathology
EPHX1 mutations variously cause pre-eclampsia, epoxide hydrolase deficiency or increase epoxide hydrolase activity.

This transition is highly influenced by the bio-oil content in the formulations, and it ranged from around 100[degrees]C for pure epox. bio-oil, up to approximately 180[degrees]C for the 100 wt% [alpha]-RA (with the mixtures of these two components falling in between the above mentioned values).
Such behavior could be related to the fact that the average epoxy content of the epoxidized derivatives of the [alpha]-resorcylic acid is three times larger than the one shown by the epox. bio-oil, leading to a higher capability to crosslink.
