For exemestane, steroid aromatase inactivator is a pseudo-substrate of aromatase. Since estrogen in postmenopausal women is mainly produced by androgen (produced by adrenal cortex) in the peripheral tissue under the action of aromatase transformation, this product by irreversibly binding with aromatase active site to inactivate it, thus significantly reducing the blood circulation of estrogen in menopausal women.
