Enzyme Commission Summary:
Requires NADPH and EC 126.96.36.199, NADPH--hemoprotein reductase. A heme-thiolate protein (P-450) enzyme responsible for the conversion of progesterone and 17-α-hydroxyprogesterone to their respective 21-hydroxylated derivatives, 11-deoxycorticosterone and 11-desoxycortisol. Involved in the biosynthesis of the hormones aldosterone and cortisol.
