Chemical Information
FooDB NameDesoxycorticosterol
DescriptionDesoxycorticosterol, also known as 21-hydroxy-4-pregnene-3,20-dione or 21-hydroxyprogesterone, is a member of the class of compounds known as 21-hydroxysteroids. 21-hydroxysteroids are steroids carrying a hydroxyl group at the 21-position of the steroid backbone. Thus, desoxycorticosterol is considered to be a steroid lipid molecule. Desoxycorticosterol is practically insoluble (in water) and a very weakly acidic compound (based on its pKa). Desoxycorticosterol can be synthesized from progesterone. Desoxycorticosterol can also be synthesized into 11-deoxycorticosterone-21-hemisuccinate and 5beta-dihydrodeoxycorticosterone. Desoxycorticosterol can be found in rice, which makes desoxycorticosterol a potential biomarker for the consumption of this food product. Desoxycorticosterol can be found primarily in amniotic fluid and blood, as well as throughout all human tissues. In humans, desoxycorticosterol is involved in the steroidogenesis. Desoxycorticosterol is also involved in several metabolic disorders, some of which include corticosterone methyl oxidase I deficiency (CMO I), 21-hydroxylase deficiency (CYP21), corticosterone methyl oxidase II deficiency - CMO II, and 11-beta-hydroxylase deficiency (CYP11B1). Desoxycorticosterol is a non-carcinogenic (not listed by IARC) potentially toxic compound.
