HSD3B7 localizations

HSD3B7 [ENSP00000297679]

Hydroxy-delta-5-steroid dehydrogenase, 3 beta- and steroid delta-isomerase 7; The 3-beta-HSD enzymatic system plays a crucial role in the biosynthesis of all classes of hormonal steroids. HSD VII is active against four 7-alpha-hydroxylated sterols. Does not metabolize several different C(19/21) steroids as substrates. Involved in bile acid synthesis. Plays a key role in cell positioning and movement in lymphoid tissues by mediating degradation of 7-alpha,25-dihydroxycholesterol (7- alpha,25-OHC): 7-alpha,25-OHC acts as a ligand for the G protein- coupled receptor GPR183/EBI2, a chemotactic receptor for a number of lymphoid cells.
