We report the use of steroid-based compounds as probes for the active site of 17β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase, in particular, type 3 (17β-HSD3). Results suggest that the compounds were good inhibitors of 17β-HSD3 – a number were extremely potent with respect to the standard compounds used.

Keywords: 17β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase, Type 3, Inhibition, Enzyme, Steroid-based compound
