  Steroids are made up of many steroid rings, in which these rings consists of a combination of "one 5 carbon ring, and 3 six carbon rings" (Cholesterol being the primary structure), (Kishner, page 1). Steroids comprise of all the form acquired from the basic ring structure, one of them being testosterone and the anabolic-androgenic steroids (AASs).   The book is a solid compendium on anabolic androgenic steroids that currently are used by majority bodybuilders. It also tackles the problem of health risk of steroid use/abuse. In special chapters application of insulin and Human Growth Hormone is also discussed.2/5(1).

  The term steroid has become virtually synonymous with drug abuse in sport to the majority of the public. However these steroids - androgens - actually comprise only a single relatively small class of biologically active steroids, and are overshadowed by a large collection of compounds, a sizeable number of which are commercial drugs that share the same structural . Hormonal Steroids: Biochemistry, Pharmacology, and Therapeutics, Volume I focuses on various research on steroids and their biological and medical involvements. Comprised of 60 chapters, the book presents the literature of various authors who have conducted research on the relationship between hormonal steroids and biochemistry, pharmacology. Steroids Are Hydroxylated by Cytochrome P Monooxygenases That Utilize NADPH and O 2; The Cytochrome P System Is Widespread and Performs a Protective Function; Pregnenolone, a Precursor for Many Other Steroids, Is Formed from Cholesterol by Cleavage of Its Side Chain; Book Edition: 5th. This is a solid star contribution, written in the vein of the rest of the At a Glance series. It is a ready source of information for those weak in chemistry/structure finding themselves in need of a rapid introduction to the overall subject of steroids (e.g., toward pharmacy, pharmacology, or even chemical synthesis work, to provide a broader persspective than that of a single agent or 3/5(2).

Anabolic steroids are used medically in humans and other animals and are commonly abused by human athletes. Learn more about their uses and side effects. The underlying theme of this volume is the understanding of the molecules and processes important in the primary metabolism of insects. The 19 chapters provide both rich historical perspectives and timely reviews of current research, as well as showing the extent of progress to be expected in the near future, including the application of advanced techniques now used for . General The Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is devoted to new experimental and theoretical developments in areas related to steroids including vitamin D, lipids and their Journal publishes a variety of contributions, including original articles, general and focused reviews, and rapid communications (brief articles of particular interest .
