  • 17β-HSD types 1-3, the key enzymes in homeostasis of steroid hormones (Andersson, 1995, Blomquist, 1995) seem to have their role solely in steroid metabolism catalysing reactions on steroid substrates only. (wikipedia.org)
  • 1993). Beside this, 17β-oxidation of intermediates of steroid metabolism, e.g. 5α-androstane-3α,17β-diol, dihydrotestosterone and Δ5-androstene-3β,17β-diol is described (for review see Mindnich et al. (wikipedia.org)

  • Formebolone (INN, BAN) (brand names Esiclene, Hubernol, Metanor), also known (confusingly) as formyldienolone, as well as 2-formyl-11α-hydroxy-17α-methyl-δ1-testosterone, is an orally active anabolic-androgenic steroid (AAS) described as an anticatabolic and anabolic drug that is or has been marketed in Spain and Italy.

  • androgen
  • 17β-HSD2 is involved in inactivation of androgens and estrogens, being accurately describable as "antiandrogenic" and "antiestrogenic", and is the key 17β-HSD isozyme in androgen and estrogen inactivation. (wikipedia.org)

  • substrates
  • In enzymology, a 20-α-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (EC 1.1.1.149) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction 17alpha,20alpha-dihydroxypregn-4-en-3-one + NAD(P)+ ⇌ {\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons } 17alpha-hydroxyprogesterone + NAD(P)H + H+ The 3 substrates of this enzyme are 17alpha,20alpha-dihydroxypregn-4-en-3-one, NAD+, and NADP+, whereas its 4 products are 17-alpha-hydroxyprogesterone, NADH, NADPH, and H+.
