Hormone-sensitive lipase deficiency in mice causes lipid storage in the adrenal cortex and impaired corticosterone response to corticotropin stimulation.


Hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL, E.C., gene designation Lipe) is reportedly the major cholesteryl esterase of adrenal cortex. Because of the potential importance of cholesteryl ester hydrolysis in steroidogenesis, gene-targeted HSL-deficient mice were assessed for adrenal cortical morphology and function. Compared with control animals, HSL deficiency… (More)
