Analysis of the substrate-binding site of human carbonyl reductases CBR1 and CBR3 by site-directed mutagenesis.

Abstract:

Human carbonyl reductase is a member of the short-chain dehydrogenase/reductase (SDR) protein superfamily and is known to play an important role in the detoxification of xenobiotics bearing a carbonyl group. The two monomeric NADPH-dependent human isoforms of cytosolic carbonyl reductase CBR1 and CBR3 show a sequence similarity of 85% on the amino acid level, which is definitely high if compared to the low similarities usually observed among other members of the SDR superfamily (15-30%). Desp...
