Enzymes characterized by I. Hanukoglu

I have isolated and characterized two enzymes that are essential for the biosynthesis of all steroid hormones in all steroidogenic tissues:

1. Cholesterol side-chain-cleaving cytochrome P450scc, EC

2. Adrenodoxin reductase, EC

In addition, I have also characterized P450c11 that catalyzes 11β hydroxylation of steroids in the adrenal cortex:

3. P45011β monooxygenase, EC
