RN: 53-43-0
UNII: 459AG36T1B
InChIKey: FMGSKLZLMKYGDP-USOAJAOKSA-N

Notes

  • A major C19 steroid produced by the ADRENAL CORTEX. It is also produced in small quantities in the TESTIS and the OVARY. Dehydroepiandrosterone ( DHEA) can be converted to TESTOSTERONE; ANDROSTENEDIONE; ESTRADIOL; and ESTRONE. Most of DHEA is sulfated ( DEHYDROEPIANDROSTERONE SULFATE) before secretion.
