ENZYME entry: EC 4.1.2.30

Accepted Name
17-alpha-hydroxyprogesterone aldolase.
Alternative Name(s)
17-alpha-hydroxyprogesterone acetaldehyde-lyase.
CYP17.
CYP17A1.
Reaction catalysed
17-alpha-hydroxyprogesterone <=> androst-4-ene-3,17-dione + acetaldehyde
Comment(s)
  • A microsomal hemeprotein that catalyzes two independent reactions at the same active site - the 17-hydroxylation of pregnenolone and progesterone, which is part of glucocorticoid hormones biosynthesis (EC 1.14.99.9), and the conversion of the 17-hydroxylated products via a 17,20-lyase reaction to form androstenedione and dehydroepiandrosterone, leading to sex hormone biosynthesis.
  • The enzymes from different organisms differ in their substrate specificity.
  • While the enzymes from pig, hamster, and rat accept both 17-alpha- hydroxyprogesterone and 17-alpha-hydroxypregnenolone, the enzymes from human, bovine, sheep, goat, and bison do not accept the former, and the enzyme from guinea pig does not accept the latter.
