Testosterone antibody | XM209
|Mouse anti Testosterone antibody, clone XM209 recognizes testosterone, a steroid hormone from the androgen group. It is derived from cholesterol. Testosterone is primarily secreted in the testes, but small amounts are also produced by the ovaries and adrenal glands. It is the principal male sex hormone and is responsible for the maturation of sex organs and the development of male secondary sex characteristics. The hormone is also involved in the growth of muscle mass and increased bone density and maturation. It functions by activating the androgen receptor and converting to estradiol and activation of estrogen receptors. Testosterone has been employed therapeutically to treat many conditions including infertility, lack of libido, osteoporosis, height growth and bone marrow stimulation.
Mouse anti Testosterone antibody, clone XM209 cross-reacts minimally with 5-alpha-dehydrotestosterone and androstendiol.
