Immunolocalization of NAD-dependent 11 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase in human kidney and colon.

Abstract

The inactivation of physiological glucocorticoids by 11 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (11 beta-HSD) confers mineralocorticoid specificity to certain aldosterone target tissues. Both NADP, and NAD-dependent isoforms of 11 beta-HSD have been described. An NAD-dependent isoform of 11 beta-HSD (11 beta-HSD2) was recently cloned from human kidney. The… (More)
