Protein Overview: Aldo-keto reductase family 1 member C3 homolog

Catalyzes the conversion of aldehydes and ketones to alcohols. Catalyzes the reduction of prostaglandin (PG) D2, PGH2 and phenanthrenequinone (PQ) and the oxidation of 9-alpha,11-beta-PGF2 to PGD2. Functions as a bi-directional 3-alpha-, 17-beta- and 20-alpha HSD. Can interconvert active androgens, estrogens and progestins with their cognate inactive metabolites. Preferentially transforms androstenedione (4-dione) to testosterone.

Synonyms: 17-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 5, 17-beta-HSD 5, 3-alpha-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 2, 3-alpha-HSD type 2, Indanol dehydrogenase, Prostaglandin F synthase, PGFS, Testosterone 17-beta-dehydrogenase 5, Trans-1,2-dihydrobenzene-1,2-diol dehydrogenase

Gene name: AKR1C3
