EC 1.14.15.4     
Accepted name: steroid 11β-monooxygenase
Reaction: a steroid + reduced adrenodoxin + O2 = an 11β-hydroxysteroid + oxidized adrenodoxin + H2O
Other name(s): steroid 11β-hydroxylase; steroid 11β/18-hydroxylase
Systematic name: steroid,reduced-adrenodoxin:oxygen oxidoreductase (11β-hydroxylating)
Comments: A heme-thiolate protein (P-450). Also hydroxylates steroids at the 18-position, and converts 18-hydroxycorticosterone into aldosterone.
