The finding suggests that the steroid, pregnenolone
sulfate, may target a specific receptor in the brain and may also be useful in treating people with memory difficulties.
can easily and inexpensively achieve progesterone values about 1.
In the present study, P450scc expression in Leydig cells was up-regulated after exposure to B[alpha]P (Figures 5, 6); this appears to be associated with a compensatory phenomenon related to producing the maximal amount of pregnenolone
with a minimal amount of transported cholesterol by the reduced StAR content, but the association remains uncertain at present.
Automated chromatographic system for the simultaneous measurement of plasma pregnenolone
and 17-hydroxypregnenolone by radioimmunoassay.
As part of his adaptive homeostat protocol, Dean recommends 10 to 100 mg of pregnenolone
per day, taken in the morning.
Biosynthesis of endogenous ouabain from pregnenolone
and progesterone in bovine adrenal cortical cells.
38) for OLF, but do not at this time exclude pregnenolone
as a precursor.
One option for patients deficient in both is pregnenolone
, dosed between 25 and 100 mg per day.

Similarly, other work has shown that the use of both progesterone and pregnenolone
as precursors in the biosynthetic pathway noticeably increased the secretion of OLF in adrenal cells, but that cortisol as a precursor only slightly increased OLF secretion into the medium (40).
77-85) Hormones originate in the mitochondria where cholesterol is converted to pregnenolone
, the precursor to all steroid hormones.
Rifampicin (RIF) and pregnenolone
16[alpha]-carbonitrile (PCN) were purchased from BioMol (Plymouth Meeting, PA).
