Abstract

Deficient activities of multiple steroidogenic enzymes have been reported without and with Antley-Bixler syndrome (ABS), but mutations of corresponding cytochrome P450 enzymes have not been found. We identified mutations in POR, encoding P450 oxidoreductase, the obligate electron donor for these enzymes, in a woman with amenorrhea and three children with ABS, even though knock-out of POR is embryonically lethal in mice. Mutations of POR also affect drug-metabolizing P450 enzymes, explaining the association of ABS with maternal fluconazole ingestion.
