Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 44 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 44 kDa). Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.


  • FunctionCatalyzes the conversion of cortisol to the inactive metabolite cortisone. Modulates intracellular glucocorticoid levels, thus protecting the nonselective mineralocorticoid receptor from occupation by glucocorticoids.
  • Tissue specificityFound in placenta, kidney, pancreas, prostate, ovary, small intestine and colon.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in HSD11B2 are the cause of apparent mineralocorticoid excess (AME) [MIM:218030]. AME is a potentially fatal disease characterized by severe juvenile low-renin hypertension, sodium retention, hypokalemia and low levels of aldosterone. It often leads to nephrocalcinosis.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the short-chain dehydrogenases/reductases (SDR) family.
  • Cellular localizationMicrosome. Endoplasmic reticulum.
