Usage: A steroid hormone that is present in normal human urine as a minor constituent , it is a less active 3β-isomer of the androgen Androsterone (A635535). Controlled Substance.
Epiandrosterone, or 3β-androsterone, also known as 3β-hydroxy-5α-androstan-17-one or 5α-androstan-3β-ol-17-one, is a steroid hormone with weak androgenic activity. It is a natural metabolite of dehy
droepiandrosterone (DHEA) via the 5α-reductase enzyme. It was first isolated in 1931, by Adolf Friedrich
Johann Butenandt and Kur Tscherning.
Epiandrosterone has been shown to naturally occur in most mammals including pigs.
Epiandrosterone is naturally produced by the enzyme 5-reductase from the adrenal hormone DHEA.
Epiandrosterone can also be converted from the natural steroids androstanediol via17β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase or from androstanedione via 3β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase.
