High-throughput screening is the dominant method used to identify lead compounds in drug discovery. As such, the makeup of screening libraries largely dictates the biological targets that can be modulated and the therapeutics that can be developed. Unfortunately, most compound-screening

Previous studies in the placental viviparous bonnethead shark, Sphyrna tiburo, have correlated 17 beta-estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, and dihydrotestosterone with reproductive events in both males and females. However, several key reproductive events, including implantation, maintenance of pregnancy, and parturition, did not

The production of 11-ketotestosterone (11KT), an important steroid hormone in piscine spermatogenesis, is regulated by the pituitary gonadotropins [Gths: follicle-stimulating hormone (Fsh) and luteinizing hormone (Lh)] and it is synthesized by catalytic reactions involving several steroidogenic enzymes. Among these enzymes

The onset of spawning behavior in male salmonids can be closely correlated to circulating levels of the progestin 17 alpha,20 beta-dihydroxy-4-pregnen-3-one (20-P). However, evidence that 20-P plays a causal role in the development and maintenance of spawning behavior in male

Adrenosterone (androst-4-ene-3,11,17-trione, 11-oxoandrostenedione) is an endogenous steroid hormone that has been promoted as a dietary supplement capable of reducing body fat and increasing muscle mass. It is proposed that adrenosterone may function as an inhibitor of the 11beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type

In the farmed flatfish Senegalese sole, F1 males reared in captivity often show lower sperm production and fertilization capacity than wild-caught males. To gain insights into the molecular mechanisms that may be altered in the F1 testis, we used 2-D

Although clinicians often measure the serum concentration of androgens in premenopausal women presenting with sexual dysfunction, with some women given testosterone or dehydroepiandrosterone as treatment if their concentrations are low, whether androgens are determinants of sexual function in women of
Ewa Kozłowska et al.
Microbial cell factories, 17(1), 71-71 (2018-05-14)
Steroid compounds are very interesting substrates for biotransformation due to their high biological activity and a high number of inactivated carbons which make chemical modification difficult. Microbial transformation can involve reactions which are complicated and uneconomical in chemical synthesis, and

In many animals, including the three-spine stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus), photoperiod strongly influences reproduction. The aim of this study was to investigate if feedback mechanisms on the brain-pituitary-gonadal axis play a role in mediating the photoperiodic response in the stickleback. To

The biological activity of androgens, important for male sexual differentiation and development, is mediated by the androgen receptor (AR) that binds to specific DNA recognition sites regulating the transcription of androgen target genes. We investigated androgen production by adult zebrafish

Courtship declines and ceases while parental care increases in the presence of developing eggs during the nesting cycle of the male three-spined stickleback, Gasterosteus aculeatus. Furthermore, circulating 11-ketotestosterone (11KT) levels are higher during the initial "courtship phase" than during the

Glucocorticoids are listed on the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Prohibited List of substances. The detection of the administration of hydrocortisone and cortisone is complicated by the fact that the human body also produces these steroids naturally.

Blood cells of male and female rainbow trout showed 17 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (17 beta HSD) activity in vitro, reducing 11 beta-hydroxyandrostenedione and 11-ketoandrostenedione (OA) to 11 beta-hydroxytestosterone and 11-ketotestosterone (OT), respectively. Enzyme activity did not vary with gonadal development in

The immunocompetence handicap hypothesis (ICHH) provides a functional explanation for how sexual ornaments can provide honest signals of male quality. A key aspect of this hypothesis is that testosterone (T) has a bimodal effect: a higher T level enhances the
