Androst 5 ene 3 beta,17 beta Diol

An intermediate in Testosterone biosynthesis, found in the Testis or the Adrenal Glands. Androstenediol, derived from Dehydroepiandrosterone by the reduction of the 17-keto group (17-Hydroxysteroid Dehydrogenases), is converted to Testosterone by the oxidation of the 3-beta hydroxyl group to a 3-keto group (3-Hydroxysteroid Dehydrogenases).
