Androgen binding protein

Introduction: Androgen binding protein

Description of Androgen binding protein

Androgen binding protein: family of soluble blood carrier proteins which transport androgens from endocrines to target tissues; do not confuse with ANDROGEN RECEPTOR, which is an intracellular protein.
Source: CRISP

Androgen binding protein: Carrier proteins produced in the Sertoli cells of the testis, secreted into the seminiferous tubules, and transported via the efferent ducts to the epididymis. They participate in the transport of androgens. Androgen-binding protein has the same amino acid sequence as SEX HORMONE-BINDING GLOBULIN. They differ by their sites of synthesis and post-translational oligosaccharide modifications.
