What are steroids?
Steroids are a class of chemical compounds characterized by four rings of carbon atoms linked in a specific way. Depending on what particular functional groups are hanging off the rings, they have a wide variety of effects in biological systems. Many hormones are steroids. Examples include testosterone, estrogen, and cortisone.
Asked in Chemistry
What is a steroid molecule?
Steroid molecules are complex structures that include four connected rings of carbon atoms. Among the more important steroids are cholesterol, which is in all body cells and is used to synthesize other steroids; sex hormones, such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone; and several other hormones from the adrenal glands.

Asked in Estrogen
Where do men produce estrogen?
estrogen in men is produced in the adrenal glands and is controlled by hippocampus section of the brain' Note well estrogen can be converted to testosterone and visa versa' note estrogens is medical slang for all female hormones' if you study estradiol it is very similar to the testosterone molecule infact its classed as the same' its only the charge differential on the carbon rings that pertrays a mechanical difference' they are all derived from leutenizing hormones which are built from various cholestrol molecules' these hormones can dock on each other receptors on the peripheral circumference of the cell but cannot enter the cell unless STAT signalling allows correct entry into the cytosol fluids! testosterone is a very troublesome tiny molecule and forms bizzare esters' of which some can cause cancers and HIV' and othe retroviral diseases that are also connected to gene mis-appropriations' note; cells cannot undergo mitosis or interleukin 2 growth hormone activation' without testosterone being present' and note there is a tremendous amount of testosterone in muscle cells in both male and females' which is poorly mentioned in most science books!
