ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
17-alpha-hydroxyprogesterone deacetylase.
Alternative Name(s)
17-alpha-hydroxyprogesterone 17,20-lyase.
17-alpha-hydroxyprogesterone acetaldehyde-lyase.
Reaction catalysed
  • 17-alpha-hydroxyprogesterone + [reduced NADPH--hemoprotein reductase] + O(2) <=> androstenedione + acetate + [oxidized NADPH--hemoprotein reductase] + H(2)O
  • 17-alpha-hydroxypregnenolone + [reduced NADPH--hemoprotein reductase] + O(2) <=> 3-beta-hydroxyandrost-5-en-17-one + acetate + [oxidized NADPH--hemoprotein reductase] + H(2)O
  • A microsomal protein 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, and the conversion of the 17-hydroxylated products via a 17,20-lyase reaction to form androstenedione and 3-beta- hydroxyandrost-5-en-17-one, leading to sex hormone biosynthesis.
  • The activity of this reaction is dependent on the allosteric interaction of the enzyme with cytochrome b5 without any transfer of electrons from the cytochrome.
  • 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.
