Pregn-5-ene-3,20-dione-17-ol isomerizes to 17-hydroxyprogesterone. This reaction is catalyzed by the isomerase activity of 3 beta-HSD, associated with the endoplasmic reticulum membrane. The active form of the enzyme is a homodimer. The enzyme occurs in two isoforms that are similar in their biochemical properties but differ in their tissue expression: type I (HSD3B1) is found in placenta and skin, while type II (HSD3B2) is found in the adrenal glands and gonads.
