Accepted name: 3α-hydroxysteroid 3-dehydrogenase (Re-specific)
Reaction: a 3α-hydroxysteroid + NAD(P)+ = a 3-oxosteroid + NAD(P)H + H+
Other name(s): 3α-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase; 3α-hydroxysteroid:NAD(P)+ 3-oxidoreductase (A-specific); 3α-hydroxysteroid 3-dehydrogenase (A-specific)
Systematic name: 3α-hydroxysteroid:NAD(P)+ 3-oxidoreductase (Re-specific)
Comments: The enzyme acts on multiple 3α-hydroxysteroids. Re-specific with respect to NAD+ or NADP+ [cf. EC, 3α-hydroxysteroid 3-dehydrogenase (Si-specific)]. Enzymes whose stereo-specificity with respect to NAD+ or NADP+ is not known are described by EC, 3α-hydroxysteroid 3-dehydrogenase.
