16α-Hydroxyprogesterone has been isolated and characterized after incubation of 4-[14C]-progesterone with 105,000 g microsomes of human fetal liver at midpregnancy. The identity of 16α-hydroxyprogesterone was proved by crystallizations to constant specific activity and by its behavior on thin-layer chromatography and gas-liquid chromatography as well as by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.
