Metabolite Identification
Common Name5b-Dihydrotestosterone
Description5b-Dihydrotestosterone, also known as 5-beta-DHT or 5-Β-DHT, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as androgens and derivatives. These are 3-hydroxylated C19 steroid hormones. They are known to favor the development of masculine characteristics. They also show profound effects on scalp and body hair in humans. Thus, 5b-dihydrotestosterone is considered to be a steroid lipid molecule. 5b-Dihydrotestosterone is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral.
