The estradiol-synthesizing enzyme 17beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (17betaHSD1) is mainly responsible for the conversion of estrone (E1) to the potent estrogen estradiol (E2). It is a key player to control tissue levels of E2 and is therefore an attractive target in estradiol-dependent diseases like breast cancer or endometriosis. We selected a(More)
Lowering local estradiol concentration by inhibition of the estradiol-synthesizing enzyme 17beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (17beta-HSD1) has been proposed as a promising new therapeutic option to treat estrogen-dependent diseases like endometriosis and breast cancer. Based on a molecular modelling approach we designed and synthesized novel(More)
