Chemical Information
FooDB Nameandrost-4-en-3,17-dione
DescriptionAndrost-4-en-3,17-dione, also known as androstenedione or delta(4)-androsten-3,17-dione, belongs to androgens and derivatives class of compounds. Those 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, androst-4-en-3,17-dione is considered to be a steroid lipid molecule. Androst-4-en-3,17-dione is practically insoluble (in water) and an extremely weak acidic compound (based on its pKa). Androst-4-en-3,17-dione can be found in a number of food items such as naranjilla, purslane, common cabbage, and oval-leaf huckleberry, which makes androst-4-en-3,17-dione a potential biomarker for the consumption of these food products. Androst-4-en-3,17-dione can be found primarily in blood, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), and urine, as well as throughout most human tissues. In humans, androst-4-en-3,17-dione is involved in a couple of metabolic pathways, which include androgen and estrogen metabolism and androstenedione metabolism. Androst-4-en-3,17-dione is also involved in a couple of metabolic disorders, which include 17-beta hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase III deficiency and aromatase deficiency. Moreover, androst-4-en-3,17-dione is found to be associated with rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid cancer , cushing's Syndrome, and schizophrenia. Androst-4-en-3,17-dione is a non-carcinogenic (not listed by IARC) potentially toxic compound.
