Metabolite Identification
Common Name6beta-Hydroxytestosterone
Description6beta-Hydroxytestosterone, also known as 4-androsten-6b,17b-diol-3-one, 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, 6beta-hydroxytestosterone is considered to be a steroid lipid molecule. 6beta-Hydroxytestosterone exists as a solid and is considered to be practically insoluble (in water) and relatively neutral. 6beta-Hydroxytestosterone has been found in human hepatic tissue, liver and kidney tissues, and has also been detected in multiple biofluids, such as urine and blood. Within the cell, 6beta-hydroxytestosterone is primarily located in the cytoplasm, membrane (predicted from logP) and endoplasmic reticulum. 6beta-Hydroxytestosterone participates in a number of enzymatic reactions. In particular, 6beta-hydroxytestosterone can be biosynthesized from testosterone. 6beta-Hydroxytestosterone can also be converted into glucosyl-6beta-hydroxytestosterone.
