One of the primary enzymes needed for the conversion of these hormones into their active muscle building metabolites is 17 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (17b-HSD). There are several different types of 17b-HSD’s in humans, however a very important one is 17b-HSD type 3, which is primarily found in the testicles. Type 3 17b-HSD is responsible for the conversion of androstenedione to the all important testosterone. Or in the case of 1-androsterone, which first converts to 1-Androstenedione, and then to the powerful muscle building 1-testosterone. This enzyme is important because the more (17b-HSD type 3) you have, the more likely 1-androstenedione will convert to 1-testosterone, instead of the estrogen known as estrone...
