Short chain dehydrogenase/reductase family 45C member 1
FunctionThe heteroteramer with HSD17B8 has NADH-dependent 3-ketoacyl-acyl carrier protein reductase activity. May play a role in biosynthesis of fatty acids in mitochondria. The homotetramer may act as NADPH-dependent quinone reductase. Has broad substrate specificity and reduces 9,10-phenanthrenequinone, 1,4-benzoquinone and various other o-quinones and p-quinones (in vitro).
Tissue specificityDetected in liver and kidney (at protein level).
PathwayLipid metabolism; fatty acid biosynthesis.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the short-chain dehydrogenases/reductases (SDR) family.
