5α-Androstane-3α, 17β-diol Glucuronide (3α-Diol G) LIA kit

5α-Androstane-3α, 17β-diol glucuronide is a C19 steroid and is either abbreviated as 3α-Diol G, 5α-Diol G or simply, α-Diol G. It is produced mainly as a metabolite of testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT). It is largely produced in target peripheral tissues such as the skin, especially around hair follicles. The stimulation by large amounts of 3α-Diol G leads to excessive hair formation, notably where hair is not normally present in women.

In recent years the interest in the measurement of this steroid has increased among clinical investigators studying women suffering from idiopathic hirsutism.
