Testosterone, a steroid horomone from the androgen group, is derived from cholesterol. Testosterone is primarily secreted in the tests, but small amounts are also produced by the ovaries and adrenal glands. It is the principal male sex horomone and is responsible for the maturation of sex organs and the development of male secondary sex characteristics. The horomone is also involved in the growth of muscle mass and increases bone density and maturation. It functions by activating the androgen receptor and converting to estradiol and activation of estrogen receptors. Testosterone has been employed therapuetically to treat many conditions including infertility, lack of libido, osteoporosis, height growth and bone marrow stimulation.
