Protein Information
Name AKR1C3
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.
Cellular Location Cytoplasm.
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 reductasesuperfamily, which consists of more than 40 known enzymes andproteins. These enzymes catalyze the conversion of aldehydes andketones to their corresponding alcohols by utilizing NADH and/orNADPH as cofactors. The enzymes display overlapping but distinctsubstrate specificity. This enzyme catalyzes the reduction ofprostaglandin (PG) D2, PGH2 and phenanthrenequinone (PQ), and theoxidation of 9alpha,11beta-PGF2 to PGD2. It may play an importantrole in the pathogenesis of allergic diseases such as asthma, andmay also have a role in controlling cell growth and/ordifferentiation. This gene shares high sequence identity with threeother gene members and is clustered with those three genes atchromosome 10p15-p14.
