Disordered expression of adrenal steroidogenic P450 mRNAs in incidentally discovered nonfunctioning adrenal adenoma.


In order to elucidate the steroidogenesis of clinically nonfunctioning adrenocortical adenoma, we studied the aldosterone, cortisol (F) and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) content and the expression of mRNA of cytochrome P450 for side chain cleavage (P450scc), 17 alpha-hydroxylase (P450c17). 21-hydroxylase (P450c21) and 11 beta-hydroxylase (P450c11) in four… (More)
