¹ 100-20 SteroidEIA-DHEA-sulfate
Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEA-S) is a steroid hormone produced mainly by adrenal cortex. The function of DHEA-S in the organism is not definitely specified. The hormone has a weak androgenic effect. In peripheral tissues it can be converted into testosterone – a very strong androgen. DHEA-S does not bind to special transport proteins in blood stream. There is no circadian rhythm in DHEA-S secretion. Quantitative determination of DHEA-S is necessary for differential diagnostics of ovariopathies as well as for evaluation of adrenal function in pubescence and for differential diagnostics of Cushing syndrome and disease.
SteroidEIA-DHEA-sulfate kit is intended for the quantitative determination of dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate in human serum.
