About This Section

Entrez Gene summary for AKR1C4 Gene:
This gene encodes a member of the aldo/keto reductase superfamily, which consists of more than 40 known enzymes
and proteins. These enzymes catalyze the conversion of aldehydes and ketones to their corresponding alcohols by
utilizing NADH and/or NADPH as cofactors. The enzymes display overlapping but distinct substrate specificity.
This enzyme catalyzes the bioreduction of chlordecone, a toxic organochlorine pesticide, to chlordecone alcohol
in liver. This gene shares high sequence identity with three other gene members and is clustered with those three
genes at chromosome 10p15-p14. (provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008)

GeneCards Summary for AKR1C4 Gene: 
AKR1C4 (aldo-keto reductase family 1, member C4) is a protein-coding gene. Diseases associated with AKR1C4 include disorders of sex development, and alcoholism, and among its related super-pathways are Synthesis of bile acids and bile salts and Metabolic pathways. GO annotations related to this gene include electron carrier activity and oxidoreductase activity, acting on NAD(P)H, quinone or similar compound as acceptor. An important paralog of this gene is AKR1C2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: AK1C4_HUMAN, P17516
Function: Catalyzes the transformation of the potent androgen dihydrotestosterone (DHT) into the less active form,
5-alpha-androstan-3-alpha,17-beta-diol (3-alpha-diol). Also has some 20-alpha-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase
activity. The biotransformation of the pesticide chlordecone (kepone) to its corresponding alcohol leads to
increased biliary excretion of the pesticide and concomitant reduction of its neurotoxicity since bile is the
major excretory route

    a disease modifier. A splicing mutation resulting in loss of AKR1C4 exon 2 has been found in affected individuals
    carrying a causative mutation in AKR1C2 (PubMed:21802064). These patients manifest a more severe disease
