androsterone dehydrogenase (B-specific) activity

Known as: 3alpha-hydroxysteroid:NAD(P)+ oxidoreductase (B-specific), hydroxyprostaglandin dehydrogenase activity, 3-alpha-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (B-specific) activity 
Catalysis of the reaction: NAD(P)+ + androsterone = NAD(P)H + H+ + 5-alpha-androstane-3,17-dione. The reaction is B-specific (i.e. the pro-S hydrogen… (More)
