Gene: AKR1C2 (aldo-keto reductase family 1 member C2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: AKR1C2
Name: aldo-keto reductase family 1 member C2
Description: Exhibits bile acid binding activity and oxidoreductase activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to hormone stimulus; glycoside metabolic process; and positive regulation of protein kinase B signaling. Predicted to localize to cytosol. Implicated in 46,XY sex reversal 8. Biomarker of obesity.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
