26323233 Our findings suggested that CYP19A1 and HSD17B2 polymorphisms might be associated with circulating sex hormone levels in Japanese postmenopausal women, independent of current BMI.
26228249 ATRA treatment decreased the mRNA expression of 17-beta-dehydrogenase 2 (HSD17B2) which converts estradiol into estrone in a dose-dependent manner
26194504 In both arm and subumbilical skin biopsy of patients with idiopathic hirsutism, there was an up-regulation of HSD17B2 mRNA expression.
26123590 Data indicate that conversion of testosterone to 4-dione detected in abdominal adipose tissue is caused by 17b-HSD type 2 which is localized in the vasculature of the adipose compartment.
25929810 High expression of either HSD17B2 or HMGCS2 predicted poor susceptibility of rectal cancer to preoperative chemoradiotherapy.
25776474 This study demonstrated that HSD17B2 transcript and protein levels are linked to some clinicopathological features in gastric cancer.
24938708 overexpression of 17beta-HSD2 in sebocytes significantly increased the androstenedione production and markedly decreased the amounts of testosterone and dihydrotestosterone
24682418 This study identified specific germline variations in estradiol metabolism-related pathways, namely CYP1B1, SULT2B1, and HSD17B2, as novel prognostic markers that are cumulatively associated with increased risk of prostate cancer progression
24563232 Single nucleotide polymorphism in HSD17B2 gene is associated with hepatocellular carcinoma.
24560990 SNP variants in the 17beta-HSD2 and 17beta-HSD7 genes and 17beta-HSD7 copy number is associated with increased estradiol levels in breast cancer tissues.
