Testosterone is the most abundant androgen. It is secreted by the testicular Leydig cells. In addition to its hormonal activity, testosterone is a prohormone that can be converted to dihydrotestosterone, a powerful androgen, and estradiol, an estrogen.

Testosterone circulates almost entirely bound to transport proteins: Normally less than 1-2% is free. The principal transport protein for testosterone is known as sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) or testosterone-estradiol binding globulin (TeBG). Testosterone measurements are used to assess erectile dysfunction, infertility, gynecomastia, and osteoporosis and to assess hormone replacement therapy.
