Fertility & Hormones
ELISA, Lateral Flow
17-α-OHP is an edogenous progestogen steroid hormone related to progesterone. It is also a chemical intermediate in the biosynthesis of many other endogenous steroids, including androgens, estrogens, glucocorticoids, and mineralocorticoids, as well as neurosteroids. 17-α-OHP is an agonist of the progesterone receptor similarly to progesterone, albeit weakly in comparison. In addition, it is an antagonist of the mineralocoticoid receptor as well as a partial agonist of the glucocorticoid receptor, albeit with very low potency at the latter site, also similarly to progesterone.
