Estrone

Estrone

Estrone is one of the three major naturally occurring estrogens, the others being estradiol and estriol. Estrone is primarily derived from the metabolism of androstenedione in the peripheral tissues, but also produced by the ovaries and the adipose tissue. Estrone is considered a weaker estrogen compared to estradiol, and it plays various roles in both the female and male body.
