Set (2 results from a total of 2)

Identifier: R-HSA-3902489
Species: Homo sapiens
Compartment: endoplasmic reticulum membrane
This CandidateSet contains sequences identified by William Pearson's analysis of Reactome catalyst entities. Catalyst entity sequences were used to identify analagous sequences that shared overall homology and active site homology. Sequences in this Candidate set were identified in an April 24, 2012 analysis.

Species: Homo sapiens
Compartment: cytosol, endoplasmic reticulum membrane
The 17HSD family of enzymes catalyze the final step in the synthesis of estradiol and testosterone. They convert inactive 17-ketosteroids to their active 17beta-hydroxy forms. Androstenedione, a ketosteroid, is reduced to testosterone, a highly potent androgen, by the enzyme 17beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase isoform III (17HSD3). The other human isoforms of 17HSDs to take part in the final steps of active steroid biosynthesis are types 1 and VII, which reduce estrone to estradiol.
Corticotropin (Adrenocorticotropic hormone, ACTH) acts through the ACTH receptor called melanocortin receptor type 2 (MC2R) to stimulate steroidogenesis, increasing the production of androgens (McKenna et al, 1997).
In males, Lutropin (LH) stimulates testosterone production.
Identifier: R-HSA-548818
Species: Homo sapiens
Compartment: cytosol, endoplasmic reticulum membrane
Hydroxysteroid (17-beta) dehydrogenase 12 (HSD17B12) catalyzes the reaction of 3-oxooctadecanoyl-CoA (3-oxostearoyl-CoA) and NADPH + H+ to form 3-hydroxyoctadecanoyl-CoA and NADP+. This activity of HSD17B12 protein and its localization to the endoplasmic reticulum membrane were established in studies of transfected cells expressing the protein (Moon and Horton 2003). Based on the phenotypes of human subjects deficient in the enzyme, HSD17B3 is thought to catalyze the reduction of androstenedione to testosterone (Geissler et al. 1994). A detailed analysis of sequence similarities among the HSD17B protein family reveals close similarity of specificity-determining features of HSD17B12 and HSD12B3, making HSD17B3 a candidate to catalyze 3-OOD-CoA reduction as well (W. Pearson, unpublished, 2012).
