Accepted name: 3β-hydroxycholanate 3-dehydrogenase (NADP+)
Reaction: isolithocholate + NADP+ = 3-oxo-5β-cholan-24-oate + NADPH + H+
Glossary: isolithocholate = 3β-hydroxy-5β-cholan-24-oate
Other name(s): 3β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (ambiguous)
Systematic name: isolithocholate:NADP+ 3-oxidoreductase
Comments: This bacterial enzyme is involved, along with EC, 3α-hydroxycholanate dehydrogenase (NAD+), or EC, 3α-hydroxycholanate dehydrogenase (NADP+), in the modification of secondary bile acids to form 3β-bile acids (also known as iso-bile acids). The enzyme catalyses the reaction in the reduction direction in vivo. Also acts on related 3-oxo bile acids. cf. EC, 3β-hydroxycholanate 3-dehydrogenase (NAD+).
