Male sex hormone, androgen. It is synthesized by the Leydig cells of the testes in men, as well as in small amounts by the ovaries in women and the epigastric cortex in both men and women.
In medical practice, it is used in the form of testosterone itself and its esters-propionate, undecanoate, cypionate and enanthate.
The main endogenous androgen responsible for the growth and development of male genitalia and the maintenance of secondary sexual characteristics. These effects include growth and maturation of the prostate, seminal vesicles, penis, and scrotum; development of male-type hair distribution, such as on the face, pubis, chest, and armpits; enlargement of the larynx, thickening of the vocal cords, and changes in body musculature and fat distribution.
Androgens also cause nitrogen, sodium, potassium, and phosphorus retention and reduced urinary calcium excretion. Androgens increase protein anabolism and reduce protein catabolism. Nitrogen balance improves only with sufficient intake of calories and protein.
In many tissues, testosterone activity depends on a reduction to dihydrotestosterone, which binds to receptor proteins in the cytosol. The steroid receptor complex is transported to the nucleus, where it initiates transcriptional events and cellular changes associated with the action of androgens.
The drug is administered 250 mg once a week for 2-2. 5 months. On the course, it is combined with Masteron, Winstrol, and Trenbolone. For medical purposes, the drug Testoged-E 10 ml of 250 mg is administered every 3-4 weeks.
