GENE - CHEMICAL INTERACTIONS REPORT

CRRD ID: 1323510
Species: Mus musculus
CRRD Object: Gene
Symbol: Akr1c21
Name: aldo-keto reductase family 1, member C21
Acc ID: CHEBI:521033
Term: dutasteride
Definition: An aza-steroid that is inasteride in which the tert-butyl group is replaced by a 2,5-bis(trifluoromethyl)phenyl group. A synthetic 4-azasteroid, dutasteride is a selective inhibitor of both the type 1 and type 2 isoforms of steroid 5alpha-reductase, an intracellular enzyme that converts testosterone to 5alpha-dihydrotestosterone. Dutasteride is used for the treatment of symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia in men with an enlarged prostate gland.
Chemical ID: MESH:D000068538
Note: Use of the qualifier "multiple interactions" designates that the annotated interaction is comprised of a complex set of reactions and/or regulatory events, possibly involving additional chemicals and/or gene products.
