HSD17B10, hydroxysteroid (17-beta) dehydrogenase 10, is a member of the short-chain dehydrogenase/reductase superfamily. HSD17B10 functions in mitochondrial tRNA maturation and catalyzes the oxidation of a wide variety of fatty acids, alcohols, and steroids. The protein is thought to play a role in the development of Alzheimer's disease. There are several alternatively spliced transcript variants, of which only two have been fully sequenced.
