Cytochrome P450c17, 17 alpha-hydroxylase/17,20 lyase, is a key enzyme in the steroidogenic pathway leading to the production of corticosteroids and androgens from the adrenal gland and sex steroids from the gonads. Both enzymatic activities of the protein are encoded by a single gene, CYP17, which is expressed in both the human adrenal and gonad but not in the placenta, and in the rodent gonad and placenta but not the rodent adrenal. We isolated and sequenced a full-length rat genomic clone (7… CONTINUE READING
