Testosterone is an androgen, which directs the development of the male phenotype during embryogenesis and at puberty. It is secretes by the testes and is converted to dihydrotestosterone in target tissues where it mediates numerous biological activities. Testosterone is produced mainly in the testes and a small amount is produced by the adrenal gland. It synthesizes from cholesterol via a progesterone intermediate. Testosterone, and its metabolites such as dihydrotestosterone, act in many parts of the body, producing the secondary sexual characteristics of males including balding, facial and body hair, deep voice, greater muscle bulk, thicker skin, and genital maturity. At puberty, it produces acne, the growth spurt and the enlargement of the penis and testes as well as causing the fusion of the epiphyses, bringing growth in height to an end. It plays some role in maintaining the sexual organs in the adult, but only a low concentration is required for this.
The normal production of testosterone in the adult male is 4 to 9 mg per day. The normal plasma concentration is 22.5 nmol/l, of which 97% is protein bound. Most of the circulating testosterone excreted in the urine in the form of 17-keto steroids, but a small amount convert to estrogenic hormones.
