Testosterone and Cellular Responses

CELLS-QWN0JQ

During puberty, the concentration of testosterone increases inside a male's body and causes changes in multiple organ systems outside of the reproductive system.

The reason this happens is because

A

when testosterone concentration increases, it diffuses widely through the body and thus strongly affects other organ systems.

B

testosterone cannot bind to cell surface receptors unless it is metabolized beforehand.

C

testosterone binds to specific protein receptors on various cells, resulting in similar responses in all affected cells.

D

testosterone binds to specific protein receptors on various cells, resulting in different responses based on cell type and location.
