Detection of Human 17 beta -HSD1/HSD17B1 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human placenta tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.2 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human 17 beta -HSD1/HSD17B1 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF7178) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for 17 beta -HSD1/HSD17B1 at approximately 35 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

17 beta ‑HSD1/HSD17B1 in Human Alzheimer's Brain. 17 beta -HSD1/HSD17B1 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human Alzheimer's brain using Sheep Anti-Human 17 beta -HSD1/HSD17B1 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF7178) at 10 µg/mL for 1 hour at room temperature followed by incubation with the Anti-Sheep IgG VisUCyte™ HRP Polymer Antibody (Catalog # VC006). Tissue was stained using DAB (brown) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm in neurons.

Background: 17 beta-HSD1/HSD17B1

HSD17B1 (Hydroxysteroid 17-beta dehydrogenase type 1; also 17  beta ‑HSD1 and E2DH) is a 33-34 kDa member of the short chain dehydrogenase/reductase (SDR) superfamily of molecules. It is a cytoplasmic breast, placental and gonadal enzyme that both converts DHEA to estrogen A-diol, and inactivates DHT through oxidation and reduction. Human HSD17B1 is 328 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains an NADP binding site (aa 10-38) and a steroid catalytic site (aa 210-221). HSD17B1 functions as a 68 kDa noncovalently-linked homodimer. Over aa 2-328, human HSD17B1 shares 65% aa identity with mouse HSD17B1.
