  • Function
    Catalyzes the transformation of the potent androgen dihydrotestosterone (DHT) into the less active form, 5-alpha-androstan-3-alpha,17-beta-diol (3-alpha-diol). Also has some 20-alpha-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase activity. The biotransformation of the pesticide chlordecone (kepone) to its corresponding alcohol leads to increased biliary excretion of the pesticide and concomitant reduction of its neurotoxicity since bile is the major excretory route.
  • Tissue specificity
    Liver specific.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the aldo/keto reductase family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    The N-terminus is blocked.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm.
