Synthesis of deuterium-labeled 5 alpha-androstane-3 alpha, 17 beta-diol and its 17 beta-glucuronide.


Using unlabeled androsterone as starting material, 5 alpha-[16,16-2H2]androstan-3 alpha-ol-17-one was synthesized by exchange using deuterated potassium methoxide. This labeled androsterone product was reduced by sodium borodeuteride, which gave predominantly trideuterated 5 alpha-androstane-3 alpha, 17 beta-diol. The labeled androstanediol was conjugated… (More)
