Biochem/physiol Actions

Dehydroandrosterone (DHEA) is a negative modulator of GABAA receptors. It is a steroid secreted by the adrenal gland with both estrogenic and androgenic properties. DHEAs conversion to 5-androstenediol, a potent estrogen, enhances the growth and survival of estrogen-sensitive breast tumors.
Negative modulator of GABAA receptors. Steroid secreted by the adrenal gland with both estrogenic and androgenic properties. Its conversion to 5-androstenediol, a potent estrogen, enhances the growth and survival of estrogen-sensitive breast tumors. At high but physiologically valid concentrations, DHEA inhibits proliferation of chromaffin progenitor cells and induces dopaminergic differentiation.

In the course of investigations into the metabolism of testosterone (T) by means of deuterated T and hydrogen isotope ratio mass spectrometry, a pronounced influence of the oral administration of T on sulfoconjugated steroid metabolites was observed. Especially in case...

How well does multi-analyte steroid mass spectrometry (MS) profiling classify women with and without polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)? Our liquid chromatography MS (LC-MS) steroid profiling only minimally improves discrimination of women with and without PCOS compared with a direct testosterone...

Early timing of adrenarche, associated with relatively high levels of Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) in children, has been associated with mental health and behavioral problems. However, little is known about effects of adreneracheal timing on brain function. The aim of this study...

Combined oral contraceptives (COCs) decrease androgen levels, including testosterone (T), which may be associated with sexual dysfunction and mood complaints in some women. We have shown that 'co-administration' of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) to a drospirenone (DRSP)-containing COC restored total T levels...
