  1. the present study suggests that AKR1C1 (show DDH Proteins), AKR1C2, AKR1C3 (show AKR1C3 Proteins), and AKR1C4 (show AKR1C4 Proteins) are closely associated with drug resistance to both CDDP and 5FU, and that mefenamic acid, an inhibitor of AKR1C, restores sensitivity through inhibition of drug-resistance in human cancer cells.

  2. We identified two powerful genes in the liver cancer metastasis process, AEG-1 (show MTDH Proteins) and AKR1C2.

  3. Identify two novel factors, AKR1C2 (positive factor) and NF1 (show NF1 Proteins) (negative factor), as the AEG-1 (show MTDH Proteins) downstream players in the process of metastasis in liver cancer.

  4. The endogenous HMOX1 (show HMOX1 Proteins) gene but not the AKR1C2 gene is strongly repressed by Bach1 (show BACH1 Proteins) in HaCaT keratinocytes.

  5. In model cell lines of endometrial cancer, AKR1C2 and SRD5A1 (show SRD5A1 Proteins) have crucial roles in progesterone metabolism.

  6. Significantly higher levels of SRD5A1 (show SRD5A1 Proteins), AKR1C2, AKR1C3 (show AKR1C3 Proteins), and HSD17B10 (show HSD17B10 Proteins) mRNA were however found in bone metastases than in non-malignant and/or malignant prostate tissue

  7. The V54L mutation significantly decreases the 3alpha-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase activity of DDH2 for the reduction of dihydrotestosterone.

  8. DDH2 expression might be a potential predictor and monitor of cisplatin efficacy in advanced NSCLC patients.

  9. Data suggest that interleukin-1beta facilitates progesterone metabolism in cervical fibroblasts by regulating expression of AKR1C1 (show DDH Proteins) and AKR1C2.

  10. Data suggest that modulation of AKR1C2 by glucocorticoids (dexamethasone in this study) locally modifies exposure of adipose cells to endogenous androgens; thus, AKR1C2 activation/inactivation may be involved in regional fat deposition.

AKR1C2 Protein Profile

Protein Summary

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.
