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.
