Abstract

The major compound present in the steroid monosulfate fraction of urine from a macaque monkey (Macaca fascicularis) during pregnancy was identified by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry as 5-androstene-3β, 16α, 17β-triol. The excretion of this compound increased throughout the period of gestation (from 10 to 130 μg/24 hr). Other compounds identified were 3β-hydroxy-5-androsten-17-one, 5-androstene-3β, 17β-diol and three androstane-3, 16, 17-triols.
