AKR1C2 Gene family

AKR1C2 Protein

AKR1C2 protein function

Works in concert with the 5-alpha/5-beta-steroid reductases to convert steroid hormones into the 3-alpha/5-alpha and 3-alpha/5-beta-tetrahydrosteroids. Catalyzes the inactivation of the most potent androgen 5-alpha-dihydrotestosterone (5-alpha-DHT) to 5-alpha-androstane-3-alpha,17-beta-diol (3-alpha-diol). Has a high bile-binding ability. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:15929998, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17034817, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17442338, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8573067}.
