Establishment and characterization of a human adrenocortical carcinoma cell line that expresses multiple pathways of steroid biosynthesis.
We established a continuous cell line, NCI-H295, from an invasive primary adrenocortical carcinoma. The cell line was established in a fully defined medium (HITES) and later could be adapted forExpand

Mutations in the genes encoding 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 and hexose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase interact to cause cortisone reductase deficiency
In cortisone reductase deficiency (CRD), activation of cortisone to cortisol does not occur, resulting in adrenocorticotropin-mediated androgen excess and a phenotype resembling polycystic ovaryExpand

Gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) remains a pre-eminent discovery tool in clinical steroid investigations even in the era of fast liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS)☆
Liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) is replacing classical methods for steroid hormone analysis. It requires small sample volumes and has given rise to improved specificity andExpand

Congenital adrenal hyperplasia caused by mutant P450 oxidoreductase and human androgen synthesis: analytical study
BACKGROUND Congenital adrenal hyperplasia with apparent combined P450C17 and P450C21 deficiency is associated with accumulation of steroid metabolites, indicating impaired activity ofExpand

A novel form of human mendelian hypertension featuring nonglucocorticoid-remediable aldosteronism.
CONTEXT Primary aldosteronism is a leading cause of secondary hypertension (HTN), but the mechanisms underlying the characteristic renin-independent secretion of aldosterone remain unknown in mostExpand

Hexose-6-phosphate Dehydrogenase Knock-out Mice Lack 11β-Hydroxysteroid Dehydrogenase Type 1-mediated Glucocorticoid Generation*
The local generation of active glucocorticoid by NADPH-dependent, 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11β-HSD1) oxoreductase activity, has emerged as an important factor in regulating hepaticExpand

Urine Steroid Metabolomics as a Biomarker Tool for Detecting Malignancy in Adrenal Tumors
Context: Adrenal tumors have a prevalence of around 2% in the general population. Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is rare but accounts for 2–11% of incidentally discovered adrenal masses.Expand

Steroid metabolome analysis reveals prevalent glucocorticoid excess in primary aldosteronism
BACKGROUND. Adrenal aldosterone excess is the most common cause of secondary hypertension and is associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity. However, adverse metabolic risk in primaryExpand

Comparative rates of androgen production and metabolism in Caucasian and Chinese subjects.
Clinically apparent prostate cancer occurs more commonly among Caucasians living in Western countries than in Chinese in the Far East. Prior studies demonstrated diminished facial and body hair andExpand
