Androstènedione

Androstenedione is the common precursor of the androgen and estrogen sex hormones.. Androstenedione can be biosynthesized in one of two ways. The primary pathway involves conversion of 17α-hydroxypregnenolone to DHEA by way of 17,20-lyase, with subsequent conversion of DHEA to androstenedione via the enzyme 3β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase.The secondary pathway involves conversion of 17α …

Androstenedione is a 19-carbon androgen, produced by both the adrenal gland (ACTH control) and gonads (LH or HCG control) and also by peripheral conversion from testosterone. Androstenedione has 20% of the androgenic potency of testosterone.

Androstenedione is a steroid hormone. It is used to make medicine. Androstenedione is used to increase the production of the hormone testosterone to enhance athletic performance, build muscle,…

Androstenedione (D4) is produced in the adrenal glands and gonads and is a precursor steroid for testosterone and oestrogens (oestrone and oestradiol). Measurement may be indicated for:- investigation of high testosterone in a woman management of CAH due to 11ß- or 21-hydroxylase deficiency

Androstenedione is described as a ‘pro-hormone’ because it has few effects itself. Instead, it is important because of the ability of different parts of the body to convert it into the hormones, testosterone and oestrogen, which exert many effects on the body.

Androstenedione is a steroid hormone. It is used to make medicine. Androstenedione is used to increase the production of the hormone testosterone to enhance athletic performance, increase energy, keep red blood cells healthy, enhance recovery and growth from exercise, and increase sexual desire and performance.

Androstanedione, also known as 5α-androstanedione or as 5α-androstane-3,17-dione, is a naturally occurring androstane (5α-androstane) steroid and an endogenous metabolite of androgens like testosterone, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), and androstenedione. It is the C5 epimer of etiocholanedione (5β-androstanedione). Androstanedione is formed from androstenedione …
