  • Target

    • Function
      Catalyzes reversibly the conversion of cortisol to the inactive metabolite cortisone. Catalyzes reversibly the conversion of 7-ketocholesterol to 7-beta-hydroxycholesterol. In intact cells, the reaction runs only in one direction, from 7-ketocholesterol to 7-beta-hydroxycholesterol.
    • Tissue specificity
      Widely expressed. Highest expression in liver.
    • Involvement in disease
      Defects in HSD11B1 are a cause of cortisone reductase deficiency (CRD) [MIM:604931]. In CRD, activation of cortisone to cortisol does not occur, resulting in adrenocorticotropin-mediated androgen excess and a phenotype resembling polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the short-chain dehydrogenases/reductases (SDR) family.
    • Post-translational
    • Cellular localization
      Endoplasmic reticulum membrane.

    Customer reviews and Q&As

    This product is known to not work in this application or species.
    Flow Cytometry
    Mouse Cell (murine T cells from spleen)
    Yes - Saponin based buffer (BD perm/wash)
    Gating Strategy
    Singlets were excluded. Alive cells were selected according to the exclusion of the viability dye. CD8+ cells were gated for the analysis of 11bHSD1.
    murine T cells from spleen
    Cell harvesting/tissue preparation method: Spleen was harvested and pass through a 100 um nylon strainer. Red blood cell lysis was performed. Extracellular staining was first performed, followed by fixation and permeabilization previous the intracellular staining.
    Sample buffer: KDS-BSS
