We report the synthesis, evaluation and rationalisation of the inhibitory activity of a series of compounds as probes of the active site of the type 3 of 17β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (17β-HSD3). Results have provided invaluable insight into the active site (as well as supporting the previously reported model) of 17β-HSD3.
