Hypocortisolism in the South African angora goat: the role of 3betaHSD.

Abstract

South African Angora goats are susceptible to cold stress, due to their inability to produce sufficient levels of cortisol. During adrenal steroidogenesis the production of cortisol relies on the activity of two key enzymes, namely cytochrome P450 17alpha-hydroxylase and 3beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase. Cytochrome P450 17alpha-hydroxylase has previously… (More)
