aldosterone synthase

aldosterone synthase
al·dos·ter·one syn·thase (al-dosґtər-ōn sinґthās) an isozyme of steroid 11β-monooxygenase that catalyzes the last three steps (11-hydroxylation, 18-hydroxylation, and 18-oxidation) in the synthesis of aldosterone from deoxycorticosterone. It includes the activities of steroid 11β-monooxygenase [EC 1.14.15.4] and corticosterone 18-monooxygenase [EC 1.14.15.5].
