Estriol (E3), the most abundant estrogen in pregnancy is produced predominantly in the placenta from androgen precursors of fetal origin. The estriol so formed is secreted efficiently into the maternal circulation where it is converted to 4 conjugates--estriol-3-sulfate (E3-3S), estriol-16-glucosiduronate.
The estriol so formed is secreted efficiently into the maternal circulation where it is converted to 4 conjugates--estriol-3-sulfate (E3-3S), estriol-16-glucosiduronate (E3- 16G ), estriol-3-glucosiduronate (E3- 3G ) and estriol-3-sulfate-16-glucosiduronate (E3-SG). The order of renal clearances is E3- 16G greater than E3- 3G greater than E3-3S approximately E3-SG. Unconjugated E3 and E3- 3G differ from the other forms of estriol in that their removal from the blood compartment is essentially irreversible.
Serum samples were drawn before induction and at two hour intervals after infusion was started, throughout labor. The samples were analyzed for estriol (E3) and its principal conjugates, estriol-3-sulfate (E3-3S), estriol-16-glucosiduronate (E3-16G), estriol-3-glucosiduronate (E3-3G), and estriol-3-sulfate-16-glucosiduronate (E3-SG). No significant changes occurred before eight hours of infusion.
