Anabolic steroids, or anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS), are a class of steroid hormones related to the hormone testosterone. They increase protein synthesis within cells, which results in the buildup of cellular tissue (anabolism), especially in muscles. These steroids are synthetically created and can be administered either orally or by injection. o The word anabolic comes from the Greek anabolein , "to build up", and the word androgenic from the Greek andros , "man" + genein , "to produce Anabolic steroids also have androgenic and virilizing properties, including the development and maintenance of masculine characteristics such as the 5/20/10 Anabolic Steroids. ..

The main way in which steroid hormones interact with cells is by binding to proteins called androgen receptors ( AR steroid receptors) on satellite target cells of muscle and where else the targeted cells exist. Anabolic steroids bond to receptors in the cell cytoplasm or mitochondria Biological Pathways, Receptors, & Affinity 5/20/10 When steroids bind to these receptors, the protein-complex move into the cell nucleus and either alter the expression of genes or activate processes that send signals to other parts of the cell. Some anabolic steroids such as methandrostenolone bind weakly to this receptor in vitro, but still exhibit androgenic effects in vivo. The reason for this discrepancy is not known.
