Steroid Hormones

Steroid hormone, any of a gaggle of hormones that belong to the category of chemical compounds mentioned as steroids. they're secreted by three “steroid glands” the cortex , testes, and ovaries and during pregnancy by the placenta. All steroid hormones are derived from cholesterol. they're transported through the bloodstream to the cells of varied target organs where they perform the regulation of a good range of physiological functions. These hormones often are classified consistent with the organs that synthesize them: the adrenal steroids are so called because they're secreted by the cortex, and therefore the sex hormones are those produced by the ovaries and testes. This distinction isn't exclusive, however, because the cortex also secretes sex hormones, albeit to a lesser extent than do the gonads, and therefore the ovaries under abnormal conditions may produce adrenal steroids.
