Metabolite Identification
Common Name19-Oxotestosterone
Description19-Oxotestosterone is catalyzed by Aromatase (EC 1.14.14.1),also called estrogen synthetase (a cytochrome P450 enzyme which catalyzes the formation of aromatic C18 estrogens from C19 androgens; it is symbolized CYP19) into oestrogens via sequential oxidations at the 19-methyl group. Biosynthesis of estrogens from C19 steroids is catalyzed by aromatase and its tissue-specific expression is determined at least in part by alternative use of tissue-specific promoters, which give rise to transcripts with unique 5-prime noncoding termini.(OMIM 107910 ).
