HSD17B13, also known as Hydroxysteroid 17-beta dehydrogenase 13, is an enzyme primarily found in the liver and is involved in the metabolism of steroid hormones and fatty acids. It belongs to the hydroxysteroid (17-beta) dehydrogenase (HSD17B) family, which catalyzes the conversion of hydroxysteroids to ketosteroids and vice versa. One of the primary functions of HSD17B13 is its role in fatty acid metabolism, particularly in the oxidation of long-chain fatty acids. HSD17B13 is localized to the peroxisomes, cellular organelles involved in fatty acid metabolism, where it catalyzes the conversion of long-chain fatty acyl-CoAs to the corresponding 3-ketoacyl-CoAs. This enzymatic activity is essential...
