Reductive 17beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenases in the sulfatase pathway: critical in the cell proliferation of breast cancer.


Estradiol, the most potent estrogen, plays critical roles in tumor cell proliferation and breast cancer development. It can be synthesized via the aromatase pathway or the sulfatase pathway, and the later has been demonstrated to be more significant. Reductive 17beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenases (17beta-HSDs) catalyze the last step in estrogen activation… (More)
