Androstenedione is a direct precursor of testosterone and oestrone, an oestrogen. It is produced from progesterone and DHEA. In women, it is synthesised in the adrenal gland and ovaries and in men in the testis. The largest proportion of androstenedione in the blood is bound with low affinity. The plasma levels of androstenedione are similar in women and men.
