The enzymatic activity of 3 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (3 beta HSD/I) constitutes an essential step in the biosynthesis of active steroid hormones such as progesterone, mineralo- and gluco-corticoids, estrogens, and androgens. Its subcellular localization in steroidogenic tissues is usually considered to be mainly microsomal; however, 3 beta HSD/I activity is also present in mitochondrial preparations. In the present study, the distribution of 3 beta HSD/I in bovine adrenocortical… CONTINUE READING
