Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have 3-beta-hydroxy-delta5-steroid dehydrogenase activity and steroid delta-isomerase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including C21-steroid hormone metabolic process; hippocampus development; and response to corticosterone. Localizes to the mitochondrion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypertension and hypospadias. Is expressed in several structures, including adrenal gland; genitourinary system; liver; nervous system; and respiratory system. Orthologous to human HSD3B1 (hydroxy-delta-5-steroid dehydrogenase, 3 beta- and steroid delta-isomerase 1) and HSD3B2 (hydroxy-delta-5-steroid dehydrogenase, 3 beta- and steroid delta-isomerase 2).
