Cholestenone 5 alpha-Reductase (5 alpha-Reductase)

An oxidoreductase that catalyzes the conversion of compounds that contain 5-alpha-cholestan-3-one into the cholest-4-en-3-one derivative. It plays an important role in the conversion of TESTOSTERONE into DIHYDROTESTOSTERONE and PROGESTERONE into DIHYDROPROGESTERONE.
