Desmethylchlorotrianisene (DMCTA) is a nonsteroidal estrogen which is thought to be the major active metabolite of chlorotrianisene (CTA; TACE).[1][2] It is a 1:1 mixture of cis and trans isomers.[1][2] DMCTA is produced from CTA via mono-O-demethylation catalyzed by cytochrome P450 enzymes in the liver.[1][2] CTA is thought to act as a long-lasting prodrug of DMCTA.[1]
