Gene: HSD11B2 (hydroxysteroid 11-beta dehydrogenase 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: HSD11B2
Name: hydroxysteroid 11-beta dehydrogenase 2
CRRD ID: 737468
Description: Predicted to have 11-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase [NAD(P)] activity; NAD binding activity; and steroid binding activity. Predicted to be involved in glucocorticoid biosynthetic process. Predicted to localize to endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Implicated in apparent mineralocorticoid excess syndrome; hypertension; inherited metabolic disorder; obesity; and type 1 diabetes mellitus. Biomarker of type 1 diabetes mellitus and type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
