HSD17B10 hydroxysteroid 17-beta dehydrogenase 10

Gene ID: 3028, updated on 25-Jan-2022
Gene type: protein coding
Also known as: ABAD; CAMR; ERAB; HCD2; MHBD; HADH2; MRPP2; MRX17; MRX31; SCHAD; MRXS10; SDR5C1; HSD10MD; 17b-HSD10; DUPXp11.22


This gene encodes 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase type II, a member of the short-chain dehydrogenase/reductase superfamily. The gene product is a mitochondrial protein that catalyzes the oxidation of a wide variety of fatty acids and steroids, and is a subunit of mitochondrial ribonuclease P, which is involved in tRNA maturation. The protein has been implicated in the development of Alzheimer disease, and mutations in the gene are the cause of 17beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 10 (HSD10) deficiency. Several alternatively spliced transcript variants have been identified, but the full-length nature of only two transcript variants has been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2014]
