Dihydrotestosterone

Typically 5-10% of your testosterone is converted to DHT. DHT translocates androgen receptors from the membrane to intracellular locations. DHT is an androgen that has about 5 times the androgenic activity as testosterone. DHT has anti-estrogenic effects. It is possibly pro-cancer and possibly anti-cancer. DHT typically decreases in men as they age.
