Formation and inactivation of testosterone is performed by various members of the 17beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (17beta-HSD) family. The main player in testosterone formation is considered to be 17beta-HSD type 3, which catalyzes the reduction of androstenedione to testosterone with high efficiency and is almost exclusively expressed in testis. So far, only the mammalian homologs have been characterized but nothing is known about the role of 17beta-HSD type 3 in other vertebrates. In this… CONTINUE READING
