The Derivation of a Potential Transition-State for the Reduction Reaction Catalysed by 17β -Hydroxysteroid Dehydrogenase Type 3 (17β -HSD) - An Approximate Representation of its Active Site for Use in Drug Design and Discovery
Moniola S. Olusanjo,
The approximate representation of the active site of the type 3 isozyme of the enzyme 17β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (17β-HSD3) has been derived from the consideration of the proposed mechanism for the reduction reaction. Using the transition-state (TS), the mode of action of a number of inhibitors has been rationalised.
