Description
Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone and an agonist of the androgen receptor (AR), a member of the nuclear receptor superfamily of transcription factors. It is secreted by the Leydig cells of the testes and converted to the more active AR agonist, dihydrotestosterone, in the prostate by 5α-reductase.
