Evidence for a new biologic pathway of androstenedione synthesis from 11-deoxycortisol.


17-Hydroxyprogesterone is a well-known precursor of androstenedione in adrenal biosynthesis. This study using sheep adrenal incubations demonstrates that 11-deoxycortisol, the precursor of cortisol synthesis, also can be a precursor of androstenedione. Indeed, our data show that androstenedione synthesis is negatively correlated to the synthesis of cortisol… (More)
