Aldo-keto reductase family 1 member C2

3-alpha-HSD3, Chlordecone reductase homolog HAKRD, Dihydrodiol dehydrogenase 2, Dihydrodiol dehydrogenase/bile acid-binding protein, Trans-1,2-dihydrobenzene-1,2-diol dehydrogenase, Type III 3-alpha-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase, DD-2, DD2, DD/BABP.


Works in concert with the 5-alpha/5-beta-steroid reductases to convert steroid hormones into the 3-alpha/5-alpha and 3-alpha/5-beta-tetrahydrosteroids. Catalyzes the inactivation of the most potent androgen 5-alpha-dihydrotestosterone (5-alpha- DHT) to 5-alpha-androstane-3-alpha,17-beta-diol (3-alpha-diol). Has a high bile-binding ability. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:15929998, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17034817, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17442338, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8573067}..

Catalytic activity

Trans-1,2-dihydrobenzene-1,2-diol + NADP(+) = catechol + NADPH.
A 3-alpha-hydroxysteroid + NAD(P)(+) = a 3- oxosteroid + NAD(P)H.
