The metabolism of 11β-hydroxyandrostenedione by steroidogenic enzymes yields metabolites contributing to the androgen pool in prostate cancer
TLDR
The maintenance of steroid homeostasis in the prostate is critical, with perturbation of steroidogenesis contributing to the modulation of active ligands in the androgen pool, and while variable nuclear and strong cytoplasmic staining were distinctive of tumour cells, the expression levels and compartmentalization of the specific protein isoforms remain unknown.

Increased activation of the alternative "backdoor" pathway in patients with 21-hydroxylase deficiency: evidence from urinary steroid hormone analysis.
TLDR
The elevated ratios of pdiol to the Δ4 and Δ5 pathway metabolites as well as the higher androsterone to etiocholanolone ratio in patients with 21-OHD indicate postnatal activity of the backdoor pathway with maximum activity during early infancy.
Adrenal-derived 11-oxygenated 19-carbon steroids are the dominant androgens in classic 21-hydroxylase deficiency.
TLDR
The data suggest that 11oxC19 steroids are specific biomarkers of adrenal-derived androgen excess, and these steroids are elevated in both men and women with classic 21OHD.
