20alpha-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (20alpha-HSD), a member of the aldo-keto reductase (AKR) superfamily, metabolizes progesterone to its inactive form, 20alpha-dihydroprogesterone (20alpha-OHP). 20alpha-HSD is associated with functional luteolysis and plays a significant role in the reproductive system of rodents. Here we report cloning and determination… CONTINUE READING
