fasta formatted sequence

Function: Catalyzes the transformation of estrone (E1) into estradiol (E2), suggesting a central role in estrogen formation. Its strong expression in ovary and mammary gland suggest that it may constitute the major enzyme responsible for the conversion of E1 to E2 in women. Also has 3-ketoacyl-CoA reductase activity, reducing both long chain 3-ketoacyl-CoAs and long chain fatty acyl-CoAs, suggesting a role in long fatty acid elongation.
Catalytic activity: 17-beta-estradiol + NAD(P)(+) = estrone + NAD(P)H.
Pathway: Steroid biosynthesis; estrogen biosynthesis. Lipid metabolism; fatty acid biosynthesis.
Cellular location: Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.
Tissue specificity: Expressed in most tissues tested. Highly expressed in the ovary and mammary. Expressed in platelets.
