Metabolite Identification
Common NameCrustecdysone
DescriptionCrustecdysone, also known as beta-ecdysterone or 20-OH ecdysone, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as hydroxy bile acids, alcohols and derivatives. These are bile acids, alcohols or derivatives bearing at least hydroxyl group. Thus, crustecdysone is considered to be a sterol lipid molecule. Crustecdysone is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral.
