well first of all it depends on the cell. Like in muscle cells it stimulates protein synthesis but in skin cells it stimulates the secretion of sebum.
get it?

Androstenedione is another androgens besides testosterone. It has similar functions but less powerful compared to testosteron and produced in just a little amount in the body. The thing that makes it different from testosterone is the enzyme.
