The work that followed focused on the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) by the enzyme 5α-reductase type II (5αR-II) (13). Hair follicles of men and women with AGA have increased levels of 5αR-II (6). DHT formed from the action of 5αR-II on testosterone binds to the androgen receptor (AR) located in the outer root sheath and follicular papillae of hair follicles (14,15). The hormone–receptor complex then activates genes responsible for the gradual transformation of large, terminal follicles to small, miniaturized ones (6).
