    Alpha-zearalanol

    $114.80 - $401.80
    α-Zearalanol is a minor analogue of the zearalenone family of resorcinyl macrocyclic lactones, produced by several species of Fusarium. Like the other zearalenones, α-zearalanol exhibits estrogenic activity in animals. The potency of α-zearalanol, generically known as zeranol, lead to its commercial development as a growth promotant in livestock.
