Fig. 1. Integrated view of human steroidogenesis showing adrenal and gonada l pathways. Reaction 1: P450scc converts cholesterol to pregnenolone. Reaction 2: 3E-Hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (3E-HSD) converts '5 steroids (pregnenolone, 17D-hydroxypregnenolone, dehydroepiandrosterone [DHEA], androstenediol) to the corresponding '4 steroids (progesterone, 17D-hydroxyprogesterone, androstenedione, testosterone). Reaction 3: P450c17 catalyzes the 17D-hydroxylation of pregnenolone and progesterone. Reaction 4: The 17,20-lyase activity of P450c17 converts 17D-hydroxypregnenolone to DHEA; the conversion of 17D-hydroxyprogesterone to androstenedione occurs in cattle and rodents, but human P450c17 cannot catalyze this reaction efficiently.
