      Steroid, any of a class of natural or synthetic organic compounds characterized by a molecular structure of 17 carbon atoms arranged around four rings. Steroids are important in biology, chemistry, and medicine. Learn more about the nomenclature, synthesis, and biological significance of steroids.   Steroids decrease inflammation, suppress the body's immune system, block DNA from being made, as well as blocking a chemical called histamine (released during an allergic reaction). Steroid medicines are man-made but are similar to these natural hormones.

    In enzymology, a steroid Δ 5-isomerase (EC ) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction a 3-oxo-Δ 5 -steroid ⇌ {\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons } a 3-oxo-Δ 4 -steroid Hence, this enzyme has one substrate, a 3-oxo-Δ 5 -steroid, and one product, a 3-oxo-Δ 4 -steroid.   Prednisone is a corticosteroid (cortisone-like medicine or steroid). It works on the immune system to help relieve swelling, redness, itching, and allergic reactions. This medicine is available only with your doctor's prescription.

    side effects are more common with a higher dose and longer treatment. side effects are much more common with oral drugs. Definition of reaction mechanism, intermediates, and rate limiting step. How to evaluate a proposed reaction mechanism using the rate law.

The steroid hormone mechanism of action can be summarized as follows: Steroid hormones pass through the cell membrane of the target cell. The steroid hormone binds with a specific receptor in the cytoplasm.

The receptor bound steroid hormone travels into the nucleus and binds to another specific receptor on the chromatin. Corticosteroid drugs are used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, asthma, allergies and many other conditions. They also treat Addison's disease, a condition where the adrenal glands aren't able to produce even the minimum amount of corticosteroid that the body needs.

The term steroid has become virtually synonymous with drug abuse in sport to the majority of the public. However these steroids - androgens - actually comprise only a single relatively small class of biologically active steroids, and are overshadowed by a large collection of compounds, a sizeable number of which are commercial drugs that share the same structural carbon skeleton.

Steroid-induced symptoms emerge from 3 to 4 days to a median of 11 days after a patient starts corticosteroid therapy. After steroids are discontinued, depressive symptoms persist approximately 4 weeks, mania 3 weeks, and delirium a few days.

Approximately one-half of patients with steroid psychosis improve in 4 days and one-half within 2 weeks. 3. The Boston Collaborative Drug Surveillance Program.

Table 2. Allergic reactions to corticosteroids have been reported.

The name "glucocorticoid" is a portmanteau (glucose + cortex + steroid) and is composed from its role in regulation of glucose metabolism, synthesis in the adrenal cortex, and.

Corticosteroids are adrenal hormones that play important physiologic roles including modulation of glucose metabolism, protein catabolism, alteration of calcium metabolism, regulation of bone turnover, suppression of immune system, and down-regulation of the inflammatory cascade.
