5. What are steroids? What are some examples of steroids with a biological function?

Jan 3rd, 2015

Steroids are lipids based in an angular combination of four carbon rings, three of them made of six carbons and one ring made of five carbons in the extremity. The union of each ring to the adjacent ring is made by the sharing of two adjacent carbons belonging to both rings.

Bile salts, cholesterol, the sexual hormones estrogen, progesterone and testosterone, the corticosteroids and the pro-vitamin D are examples of steroids.

good luck!
