Inhibition of steroid-protein interactions by dicyclohexane derivatives.

Sixteen dicyclohexane derivatives including the parent compound d,1-3,4-bis (4-oxocyclohexyl)-hexane (PRDX) have been synthesized and studied for putative interference with androgen binding to transport proteins, metabolizing enzymes, and receptors from rat tissues. Several of these analogues inhibited competitively the binding of dihydrotestosterone to ABP… CONTINUE READING
