Pregnenolone is an endogenous neurosteroid that is involved in the steroidogenesis of progesterone, glucocorticoids, mineralocorticoids, androgens, and estrogens, making it a prohormone. It has been observed to inhibit GABA-gated chloride currents by enhancing receptor desensitization. Pregnenolone is an inhibitor of GABA Receptor and an activator of PXR.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gaignard Gaignard, P. et al. (PubMed 26039154) investigated the effect of sex differences on brain mitochondrial function and its suppression by ovariectomy and in aged mice. Their findings suggest that the major male/female differences in brain Pregnenolone and progesterone levels may contribute to sex differences observed in brain mitochondrial function. -SCBT Publication Review
