General description

Also known as androstanolone or DHT, 5α-Dihydrotestosterone is an androgen or male sex hormone that has been implicated in a broad range of disease from male pattern baldness to benign prostatic hyperplasia and prostate cancer. As an anabolic steroid, DHT has also been used as a performance-enhancing drug to promote muscle growth. This Certified Spiking Solution® is suitable for GC/MS and LC/MS applications from clinical and diagnostic testing and endocrinology to sports testing.

In rats with dihydrotestosterone (DHT)-induced polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), repeated low-frequency electrical stimulation of acupuncture needles restores whole-body insulin sensitivity measured by euglycemic hyperinsulinemic clamp. We hypothesized that electrical stimulation causing muscle contractions and manual stimulation causing needle sensation have...

5α-Reductase 2 deficiency (5ARD) is a known cause of 46,XY disorders of sex development (DSD). Traditionally, the diagnosis relies on dihydrotestosterone (DHT) measurement, but the results are often equivocal, potentially leading to misdiagnosis. We reviewed alternative approaches for diagnosis of...

Fusion of the androgen receptor-regulated (AR-regulated) TMPRSS2 gene with ERG in prostate cancer (PCa) causes androgen-stimulated overexpression of ERG, an ETS transcription factor, but critical downstream effectors of ERG-mediating PCa development remain to be established. Expression of the SOX9 transcription...
