Steroid

  • Batrachotoxin - Batrachotoxin is an extremely potent cardiotoxic and neurotoxic steroidal alkaloid found in certain species of frogs, melyrid beetles, and birds. Batrachotoxin was derived from the Greek word bátrachos "frog".
  • Membrane steroid receptor - Membrane steroid receptors, also called extranuclear steroid receptors, are a class of cell surface receptors activated by endogenous steroids that mediate rapid, non-genomic signaling via modulation of intracellular signaling cascades.
  • Pheromone - A pheromone is a secreted or excreted chemical factor that triggers a social response in members of the same species. Pheromones are chemicals capable of acting outside the body of the secreting individual to impact the behavior of the receiving individuals.
  • Reverse cholesterol transport - Reverse cholesterol transport is a multi-step process resulting in the net movement of cholesterol from peripheral tissues back to the liver via the plasma.
  • Steroidogenesis inhibitor - A steroidogenesis inhibitor, also known as a steroid biosynthesis inhibitor, is a type of drug which inhibits one or more of the enzymes that are involved in the process of steroidogenesis, the biosynthesis of endogenous steroids and steroid hormones.
  • Steroidogenic acute regulatory protein - The steroidogenic acute regulatory protein, commonly referred to as StAR, is a transport protein that regulates cholesterol transfer within the mitochondria, which is the rate-limiting step in the production of steroid hormones.
