ChEBI Name dutasteride
Definition An aza-steroid that is inasteride in which the tert-butyl group is replaced by a 2,5-bis(trifluoromethyl)phenyl group. A synthetic 4-azasteroid, dutasteride is a selective inhibitor of both the type 1 and type 2 isoforms of steroid 5α-reductase, an intracellular enzyme that converts testosterone to 5α-dihydrotestosterone. Dutasteride is used for the treatment of symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia in men with an enlarged prostate gland.

Roles Classification
Biological Role(s): EC [3-oxo-5alpha-steroid 4-dehydrogenase (NADP(+))] inhibitor
An EC 1.3.1.* (oxidoreductase acting on CH-CH group of donor, NAD+ or NADP+ as acceptor) inhibitor that interferes with the action of of 3-oxo-5alpha-steroid 4-dehydrogenase (NADP+), EC, the enzyme which converts testosterone (CHEBI:17347) into the more potent androgen 5alpha-dihydrotestosterone.
Application(s): antihyperplasia drug
