Estrone (E1) Based Esters as Potential Inhibitors of Type 3 17β- hydroxysteroid Dehydrogenase (17β-HSD3) in the Treatment of Hormone-Dependent Prostate Cancer
Moniola S. Olusanjo,
We report the use of estrone (E1)-based compounds in the search for inhibitors of 17β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase, in particular, type 3 (17β-HSD3). Results suggest that the compounds are good inhibitors of 17β-HSD3 and a number were found to be equipotent to the standard inhibitors used within the current study.
