Chemical Estrogenic Steroids, Alkylated

Name Estrogenic Steroids, Alkylated
Equivalent Terms Alkylated Estrogenic Steroids | Alkyl Estrogenic Steroids
Definition Estrogenic STEROIDS with aliphatic hydrocarbon chain substitution on C17 or other position. 17-alpha-ALKYLATION renders the molecule more stable, resistant to metabolic degradation, and improves oral efficacy. Examples of synthetic alkyl estrogens include ETHINYL ESTRADIOL and MESTRANOL. Substitutions at other sites generates antiestrogenic and cytotoxic properties.
