Cholesterol metabolism in rat adrenal gland during reversible endotoxic shock.

Abstract

The adrenal glands have a crucial role for survival during endotoxic shock. Cholesterol is the obligatory intermediary in corticosteroid biosynthesis; thus any alteration in either the availability of cholesterol or in the ability of the adrenal gland to use cholesterol would have a profound effect on corticosteroid production. We have studied the effect of… (More)
