1. Intracellular K+ content, water spaces and corticosterone output were measured in isolated zona glomerulosa and zona fasciculata-reticularis cell suspensions of rat adrenal cortex, after incubation in vitro under conditions designed to alter steroidogenesis. 2. Intracellular K+ of unpurified zona glomerulosa cells was not altered after stimulation of corticosterone output with serotonin. Similarly, with zona glomerulosa cells purified by unit gravity sedimentation, no change in intracellular… Expand
The pharmacologic control of adrenal steroidogenesis.
TLDR
The control of cortisol secretion by ACTH and of aldosterone secretion by angiotensin is exerted upon separate cell populations in the adrenal cortex, affecting cells of the zona faciculata and theZona glomerulosa differently by hormones and drugs. Expand
Characterization of rat capsular adrenal (zona glomerulosa) (Na,K)-ATPase activity.
TLDR
The characteristics of rat capsular adrenal (Na,K)-ATPase are identical to the classical enzyme, which is not the direct receptor or effector for stimulators of aldosterone biosynthesis but a supportive role in mediating the regulatory signal cannot be ruled out. Expand
Effects of ANG II and K+ on Ca efflux and aldosterone production in adrenal glomerulosa cells.
TLDR
A comparison was made of the effects of angiotensin II (ANG II) and K+ on aldosterone secretion and calcium efflux from porcine adrenal glomerulosa cells and dantrolene greatly inhibited ANG II-induced increase in the fractional efflux ratio of calcium. Expand
Serotonin and the rat adrenal gland.
TLDR
Attempts to localise 5HT within the adrenal gland using a specific monoclonal antibody to 5HT with the avidin-biotin detection technique, suggested, that serotonergic nerves are not present in the Adrenal cortex although appreciable levels of 5HT were measured by HPLC in adrenal tissue. Expand
The effects of ouabain on steroid production by rat adrenal cells stimulated by angiotensin II, alpha 1-24 adrenocorticotropin, and potassium.
TLDR
Increasing extracellular potassium concentration caused a dose-dependent reversal of the 10-4 M ouabain block so that at the highest potassium doses used (13 and 18 meq/liter), aldosterone and co... Expand
Micromethods for the simultaneous measurement of intracellular potassium and corticosterone output of isolated adrenal cortical cells.
TLDR
Values obtained for intrACEllular potassium content, intracellular water space and calculated intrace cellular potassium concentration are presented for different preparations of isolated adrenal cortical cells. Expand
Insights into the mechanism by which inhibition of Na,K-ATPase stimulates aldosterone production.
TLDR
The results show that ouabain rapidly stimulates aldosterone production, and support the hypothesis that the inhibition of Na,K-ATPase in rat adrenal glomerulosa cells immediately depolarizes the membrane potential and opens voltage-gated calcium channels. Expand
Further studies on the relationship between potassium and sodium levels and adrenocortical activity.
TLDR
The dissociation observed between intracellular potassium levels and aldosterone production suggests that there is not a simple relationship between the two parameters, and changes in external potassium and sodium levels modulate ald testosterone as well as corticosterone, but not cortisol production. Expand
Studies on the mechanism of secretion of rat adrenal steroids in vitro.
TLDR
The results suggest that the secretion of 18-OH-DOC formed from endogenous precursors by rat adrenal tissue is controlled by a mechanism involving a ouabain sensitive process in the cell membrane. Expand
Immunohistochemical localization of adrenal ferredoxin and distribution of adrenal ferredoxin and cytochrome P-450 in the rat adrenal
TLDR
In agreement with these immunohistochemical observations, determinations of adrenal ferredoxin contents by electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectrometry in homogenates prepared from capsular and decapsulated rat adrenals revealed that the concentration of adrenals in the zona glomerulosa was lower than that in theZona fasciculata-reticularis.

The properties of adrenal zona glomerulosa cells after purification by gravitational sedimentation
TLDR
The maximal response of the purified zona glomerulosa cells to cyclic AMP is similar to that elicited by valine and isoleucine angiotensin II, potassium, serotonin or ACTH, which indicates that if these stimuli act by increasing cyclicAMP output, then the maximum response of corticosterone output (about twofold) is defined by the limitedresponse of the biosynthetic pathways to cycling AMP.

In vitro effects of ACTH, angiotensins, serotonin and potassium on steroid output and conversion of corticosterone to aldosterone by isolated adrenal cells.
TLDR
Microscopic examination and consideration of steroid outputs suggest that preparations from decapsulated glands consist of zona fasciculata-reticularis cells, while those from capsular glands consist mainly of zzon glomerulosa cells with some zzon fascicULata contamination. Expand
Inhibition of aldosterone secretion by ouabain in dog adrenal cortical tissue.
TLDR
Steroid secretion in vitro by adrenal cortical slices from hypophysectomized and nephrectomized dogs was studied and it was suggested that the inhibitory action of ouabain on al... Expand
The interactions of potassium, sodium and strophanthidin during active transport of sodium ions in frog muscle cells.
TLDR
Experimental findings suggest that strophanthidin molecules react with two different membrane-located catalytic particles that are interconvertible and in equilibrium with one another, and this model is interpreted on the basis of an allosteric model. Expand
Evidence for Different Angiotensin II Receptors in Rat Adrenal Glomerulosa and Rabbit Vascular Smooth Muscle Cells: Studies with Competitive Antagonists
TLDR
Functional differences in the All receptors in the two systems of Angiotensin II are revealed and provide an approach to designing therapeutic agents that might block only one of its two major biological effects. Expand
Importance of Potassium in the Regulation of Aldosterone Production
TLDR
The data suggest that some function of intracellular rather than extracellular potassium is an important regulator of aldosterone production. Expand
The effect of serotonin and potassium on corticosterone and aldosterone production by isolated zona glomerulosa cells of the rat adrenal cortex.
TLDR
The objective was to establish an experimental procedure and show direct AFM measurements that unequivocally can be assigned as a surrogate for ATP production by the H2O/O2 mixture. Expand
