Metabolite Identification
Common NameAndrosterone
DescriptionAndrosterone, also known as androkinine or atromide ici, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as androgens and derivatives. These are 3-hydroxylated C19 steroid hormones. They are known to favor the development of masculine characteristics. They also show profound effects on scalp and body hair in humans. Thus, androsterone is considered to be a steroid lipid molecule. Androsterone is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral.
