17 ketosteroid reductase deficiency

This gene encodes a member of the aldo/keto reductase superfamily , which consists of more than 40 known enzymes and proteins. These enzymes catalyze the conversion of aldehydes and ketones to their corresponding alcohols by utilizing NADH and/or NADPH as cofactors. The enzymes display overlapping but distinct substrate specificity. This enzyme catalyzes the reduction of prostaglandin (PG) D2, PGH2 and phenanthrenequinone (PQ), and the oxidation of 9alpha,11beta-PGF2 to PGD2. It may play an important role in the pathogenesis of allergic diseases such as asthma, and may also have a role in controlling cell growth and/or differentiation. This gene shares high sequence identity with three other gene members and is clustered with those three genes at chromosome 10p15-p14. [7]

Support and advocacy groups can help you connect with other patients and families, and they can provide valuable services. Many develop patient-centered information and are the driving force behind research for better treatments and possible cures. They can direct you to research, resources, and services. Many organizations also have experts who serve as medical advisors or provide lists of doctors/clinics. Visit the group’s website or contact them to learn about the services they offer.

Man your wouldn’t you want hair on your head,or is it more important to walk around looking like a bald headed,muscle bound the end of the day when your older all that muscle will turn to flab and guess what you also won’t have any ’d rather walk around looking lean and fit with plenty of hair on my head Thankyou very it sounds like you don’t want anything competing with your cholesterol,so I guess you want high cholesterol full of contradictions and nothing you say makes any sense to me.

Cell extracts prepared anaerobically from Clostridium innocuum and Clostridium paraputrificum reduced delta 4-3-ketosteroids to 3 beta 5 beta and 3 alpha 5 beta derivatives, respectively. delta 4-3-Ketosteroid-5 beta-reductase (5 beta-reductase) from both organisms required NADH for activity. 5 beta-Reductase from C. innocuum had a pH optimum of . The substrate concentration at half-maximal reaction velocity was microM, and a specific activity of 17 nmol product formed/h per mg protein was determined using 4-pregnen-3,20-dione (progesterone) as a substrate. delta 4-3-Ketosteroid-5 beta-reductase from C. innocuum reduced progesterone and testosterone, but not 4-cholesten-3-one, to corresponding 3-keto-5 beta derivatives. A relative molecular (Mr) weight of 80 000 was estimated for 5 beta-reductase using HPLC-gel filtration chromatography. 3 beta-Hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase in cell extracts of C. innocuum was oxygen sensitive and required NADH for activity. An Mr of 80 000 was estimated for 3 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase. However, 5 beta-reductase and 3 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase activities were separated using an HPLC-DEAE chromatography technique.
