Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate or DHEA sulfate is a metabolite of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) produced by the addition of a sulfate group, catalyzed by the sulfotransferase enzymes SULT1A1 and SULT1E1, which also produce estrone sulfate from estrone. DHEA sulfate can also be back-converted to DHEA through the action of steroid sulfatase. In the zona reticularis layer of the adrenal cortex, DHEA-sulfate is generated by SULT2A1. This layer of the adrenal cortex is thought to be the primary source of serum DHEA-sulfate. DHEA sulfate levels decline as a person ages as the reticularis layer diminishes in size.show more
