Technical Data
AKR1C3, ID (AKR1C3, DDH1, HSD17B5, KIAA0119, PGFS, Aldo-keto reductase family 1 member C3, 17-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 5, 3-alpha-HSD type II, brain, 3-alpha-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 2, Chlordecone reductase homolog HAKRb, Dihydrodi
This gene encodes a member of the aldo/keto reductase superfamily, which consists of more than 40 known enzymes and proteins. These enzymes catalyze the conversion of aldehydes and ketones to their corresponding alcohols by utilizing NADH and/or NADPH as cofactors. The enzymes display overlapping but distinct substrate specificity. This enzyme catalyzes the reduction of prostaglandin (PG) D2, PGH2 and phenanthrenequinone (PQ), and the oxidation of 9alpha,11beta-PGF2 to PGD2. It may play an important role in the pathogenesis of allergic diseases such as asthma, and may also have a role in controlling cell growth and/or differentiation. This gene shares high sequence identity with three other gene members and is clustered with those three genes at chromosome 10p15-p14.
