WB 1/10000 - 1/50000. Predicted molecular weight: 26 kDa.
IP 1/10 - 1/100.
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for Flow Cyt or IHC-P.
  • Target

    • Function

      NAD-dependent 17-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase with highest activity towards estradiol. Has very low activity towards testosterone. The heteroteramer with CBR4 has NADH-dependent 3-ketoacyl-acyl carrier protein reductase activity. May play a role in biosynthesis of fatty acids in mitochondria.
    • Tissue specificity

      Highly expressed in placenta, liver and pancreas, lower in the skeletal muscle and kidney. Widely expressed.
    • Pathway

      Steroid biosynthesis; estrogen biosynthesis.
      Lipid metabolism; fatty acid biosynthesis.
    • Sequence similarities

      Belongs to the short-chain dehydrogenases/reductases (SDR) family.
    • Cellular localization

      Mitochondrion matrix.
