BACKGROUND Central obesity results in a cluster of metabolic abnormalities contributing to premature death. Glucocorticoids regulate adipose-tissue differentiation, function, and distribution, and in excess, cause central obesity. Glucocorticoid hormone action is, in part, controlled by two isoforms of the enzyme 11 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (11 beta-HSD) which interconverts hormonally active cortisol to inactive cortisone. We studied cortisol metabolism within different adipose tissue… Expand
