Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. 17-Hydroxyprogesterone (17-OH progesterone or 17OHP) is a C-21 steroid hormone produced during the synthesis of glucocorticoids and sex steroids. It is derived from progesterone via 17-hydroxylase, a P450c17 enzyme, or from 17-hydroxypregnenolone via 3 -hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase/ 5-4 isomerase. As a hormone, 17OHP also interacts with the progesterone receptor. 17-Hydroxyprogesterone is a natural progestogen, and in pregnancy increases in the third trimester primarily due to fetal adrenal production.show more
