  • The effect of trilostane and aminoglutethimide on steroidogenesis was studied on isolated guinea pig adrenocortical cells in order to verify whether, in addition to the inhibitory influence of trilostane on 3beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase and isomerase and the inhibition by aminoglutethimide of pregnenolone formation, these inhibitors may also affect other enzymatic steps of cortisol synthesis. While trilostane completely abolished cortisol production in response to ACTH with concomitant… CONTINUE READING
