Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a carbon (C)-19 neuroactive steroid. It is synthesized by the adrenal gland in humans and mammals.
DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is an endogenous steroid hormone secreted by the adrenal gland. DHEA serves as precursor to male and female sex hormones (androgens and estrogens).
25-hydroxy-cholesterol is a metabolite of cholesterol. It is produced by macrophages.
25-hydroxy-cholesterol represses the production of IgA by B cells, manages the migration of activated B cells in the germinal follicle. It regulates the differentiation of monocytes into macrophages. 25-hydroxy-cholesterol plays a critical role in lipid biosynthesis and immunity. It inhibits sterol regulatory element-binding protein (SREBP) proteolytic processing and modulates cholesterol metabolism.
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) regulates neural functions, such as neurogenesis, neuroprotection, neuronal growth and differentiation. It is used to treat multiple sclerosis. DHEA acts as a precursor of sex steroid biosynthesis.

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEAS) are metabolic intermediates in the production of potent androgens, estrogens and other less well-characterized steroids. DHEA(S) and closely related steroid hormones have a variety of immunological effects both in vitro and in vivo in...
The physiological role of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and its sulphated ester DHEA(S) has been studied for nearly 2 decades and still eludes final clarification. The major interest in DHEA derives from its unique pattern of activity. Its levels exhibit a dramatic...
