More Info: 11-Ketoetiocholanolone also show profound effects on scalp and body hair in humans. 11-Ketoetiocholanolone is considered to be a practically insoluble (in water) and relatively neutral molecule. 11-Ketoetiocholanolone has been found in human hepatic tissue tissue, and has also been detected in multiple biofluids, such as urine and blood. Within the cell, 11-ketoetiocholanolone is primarily located in the membrane (predicted from logP) and cytoplasm.
