Abstract

In healthy human physiology, several steroid hormones are regulated in a dynamic equilibrium between sulfation and desulfation reactions. Inhibitors of steroid desulfation may soon enter clinical practice in cancer treatment. Sulfation pathways also include sulfate activation and transfer. Targeting the enzymes involved here may be another pharmacological strategy to boost sulfation pathways.
