ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
3-alpha-hydroxysteroid 3-dehydrogenase.
Alternative Name(s)
3-alpha-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase.
Reaction catalysed
A 3-alpha-hydroxysteroid + NAD(P)(+) <=> a 3-oxosteroid + NAD(P)H
  • The enzyme acts on multiple 3-alpha-hydroxysteroids, such as androsterone and 5 alpha-dihydrotestosterone.
  • The mammalian enzymes are involved in inactivation of steroid hormones, while the bacterial enzymes are involved in steroid degradation.
  • This entry stands for enzymes whose stereo-specificity with respect to NAD(+) or NADP(+) is not known (cf. EC and EC
