    3aHSD converts Androstanediol to Stanolone...


    Steroid 5α-reductases and 3α-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenases: key enzymes in androgen metabolism . Best Practice & Research Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism , Volume 15 , Issue 1 , Pages 79 - 94 Y . Jin

    5α-DHT is formed from circulating testosterone by the action of the type 2 steroid 5α-reductase (5α-R) and its action is terminated by the action of a reductive 3α-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (3α-HSD) which forms the weak androgen 3α-androstanediol. Oxidative 3α-HSD isoforms, however, can provide an alternative source of potent androgens by converting 3α-androstanediol to 5α-DHT.


    Over at bb.com they will tell you that 3aHSD is selective, and that may be somewhat true for ONE isoform, but never is the situation cut and dry that way.
