Steroid metabolism by rabbit olfactory-specific P450 2G1.

Cytochrome P450 2G1 (2G1), which is uniquely expressed in the olfactory mucosa in mammals, may have important physiological functions. In the present study, we have examined the catalytic activity of rabbit 2G1 toward a number of steroid sex hormones, including androstenedione, estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, and 5 alpha-dihydrotestosterone; the… CONTINUE READING
