|Other Names||Aldo-keto reductase family 1 member C3, 1---, 17-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 5, 17-beta-HSD 5, 3-alpha-HSD type II, brain, 3-alpha-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 2, 3-alpha-HSD type 2, Chlordecone reductase homolog HAKRb, Dihydrodiol dehydrogenase 3, DD-3, DD3, Dihydrodiol dehydrogenase type I, HA1753, Indanol dehydrogenase, Prostaglandin F synthase, PGFS, Testosterone 17-beta-dehydrogenase 5, Trans-1, 2-dihydrobenzene-1, 2-diol dehydrogenase, AKR1C3, DDH1, HSD17B5, KIAA0119, PGFS|
|Target/Specificity||This AKR1C3 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 107-135 amino acids from the Central region of human AKR1C3.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||AKR1C3 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||DDH1, HSD17B5, KIAA0119, PGFS|
|Function||Catalyzes the conversion of aldehydes and ketones to alcohols. Catalyzes the reduction of prostaglandin (PG) D2, PGH2 and phenanthrenequinone (PQ) and the oxidation of 9-alpha,11-beta- PGF2 to PGD2. Functions as a bi-directional 3-alpha-, 17-beta- and 20-alpha HSD. Can interconvert active androgens, estrogens and progestins with their cognate inactive metabolites. Preferentially transforms androstenedione (4-dione) to testosterone.|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in many tissues including adrenal gland, brain, kidney, liver, lung, mammary gland, placenta, small intestine, colon, spleen, prostate and testis. The dominant HSD in prostate and mammary gland. In the prostate, higher levels in epithelial cells than in stromal cells. In the brain, expressed in medulla, spinal cord, frontotemporal lobes, thalamus, subthalamic nuclei and amygdala. Weaker expression in the hippocampus, substantia nigra and caudate.|

This gene encodes a member of the aldo/keto reductase superfamily, which consists of more than 40 known enzymes and proteins. These enzymes catalyze the conversion of aldehydes and ketones to their corresponding alcohols by utilizing NADH and/or NADPH as cofactors. The enzymes display overlapping but distinct substrate specificity. This enzyme catalyzes the reduction of prostaglandin (PG) D2, PGH2 and phenanthrenequinone (PQ), and the oxidation of 9alpha,11beta-PGF2 to PGD2. It may play an important role in the pathogenesis of allergic diseases such as asthma, and may also have a role in controlling cell growth and/or differentiation. This gene shares high sequence identity with three other gene members and is clustered with those three genes at chromosome 10p15-p14.
