Gene RIF (11)

25422294 No significant difference was found in genotype or allele distributions of the polymorphisms rs12529 of HSD17B5 and rs898611 of HSD17B6 between patients with PCOS and controls.
24244276 the CYP11A1, CYP17A1, HSD3B2, SRD5A2, and HSD17B6 mRNA levels in metastases were significantly lower.
22114194 17beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 6 (17betaHSD6) converts the androgen DHT to the estrogen 3beta-Adiol, and this leads to activation of the ERbeta reporter.
21039282 data suggest that there is no association of HSD17B6 and HSD17B5 variants with the occurrence of polycystic ovary syndrome in the Chinese population
