Aldo-keto reductase family 1, member C2

This gene encodes a member of the aldo/keto reductase superfamily, which consists of more than 40 known enzymes and proteins. These enzymes catalyze the conversion of aldehydes and ketones to their corresponding alcohols using NADH and/or NADPH as cofactors. The enzymes display overlapping but distinct substrate specificity. This enzyme binds bile acid with high affinity, and shows minimal 3-alpha-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase activity. This gene shares high sequence identity with three other gene members and is clustered with those three genes at chromosome 10p15-p14. Three transcript variants encoding two different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2011] (from NCBI)

Here, we report that seven sulphonylureas exhibit different in vitro inhibition towards AKR1Cs (AKR1C1, AKR1C2, AKR1C3), which are critical steroid hormone metabolism enzymes that are related to prostate cancer, breast cancer and endometrial diseases.
Association of parental history of type 2 diabetes with age, lifestyle, anthropometric factors, and clinical severity at type 2 diabetes diagnosis: results from the DD2 study.
Thomsen et al., Århus, Denmark. In Diabetes Metab Res Rev, Oct 2015
BACKGROUND: We investigated whether parental history of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) is associated with age, lifestyle, anthropometric factors, and clinical severity at the time of T2D diagnosis.

Updated survey of the steroid-converting enzymes in human adipose tissues.
Luu-The et al., Québec, Canada. In J Steroid Biochem Mol Biol, Mar 2015
Our work on 20α-HSD (AKR1C1), 3α-HSD type 3 (AKR1C2) and 17β-HSD type 5 (AKR1C3) allowed us to clarify the relevance of these enzymes for some aspects of adipose tissue function.
