Androgens are steroid hormones that control the development and maintenance of an individual’s masculine characteristics. Androgens, or androgenic hormones, include testosterone and androsterone. They regulate the growth, development, and function of the male reproductive system, but they also have key effects on female physiology. Androgens are also the precursors of all estrogens, the female sex hormones. The main source of androgens is the testes, while some androgens are produced by the adrenal glands in both sexes, as well as by the ovaries in women. Androgen receptors are present in a variety of tissues, in keeping with the many physiological roles of androgens. Anabolic steroids are a group of synthetic derivatives of testosterone which promote the growth and repair of body tissues.

To better understand how androgen imbalances can create a variety of disorders, Sigma-Aldrich offers a diverse set of products for androgen research. This selection includes hormones, hormone precursors, and androgen receptor antagonists.
