Reaction: progesterone + AH2 + O2 = testosterone acetate + A + H2O
Other name(s): progesterone hydroxylase
Systematic name: progesterone,hydrogen-donor:oxygen oxidoreductase (hydroxylating)
Comments: Has a wide specificity. A single enzyme from ascomycete the Neonectria radicicola (EC ketosteroid monooxygenase) catalyses both this reaction and that catalysed by EC androst-4-ene-3,17-dione monooxygenase.
