11 beta-Hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (11 beta-HSD), responsible for the interconversion of hormonally active cortisol to inactive cortisone, dictates specificity for the mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) in the distal nephron and colon. Two isoforms of human 11 beta-HSD have been cloned, an NADP(H)-dependent (type 1) dehydrogenase/oxo-reductase enzyme, and a high-affinity NAD-dependent (type 2) unidirectional dehydrogenase. Using the reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR… CONTINUE READING
