Overview of steroidogenic enzymes in the pathway from cholesterol to active steroid hormones.

This review presents a detailed description of the enzymes involved in the biosynthesis of active steroid hormones, with emphasis on the human and mouse enzymes and their expression in gonads, adrenal glands, and placenta.

Diverse reactions catalyzed by cytochrome P450 and biosynthesis of steroid hormone

The recent advances in research on the reaction mechanisms of steroid hormone biosynthesis-related P450s, some of which catalyze unusual P450 reactions including C–C bond cleavage reactions by utilizing either a heme–peroxo anion species or compound I as an active oxidizing species are described.

Characterization of the Protein Responsible for the Acute Regulation of Steroidogenesis in Mouse Leydig Tumor Cells

This chapter discusses the cellular events that rapidly occur in response to the trophic hormone stimulation of steroidogenic tissues and result in the synthesis and secretion of arguably their most

Regulation of the acute production of steroids in steroidogenic cells.

This chapter will focus on studies designed to elucidate the mechanisms involved in the acute regulation of steroid production in response to hormone stimulation.

Chimerogenesis in Estimation of Specificity and Pathway Directions for Cytochrome P45017α Catalyzed Reactions

The determination of activity of chimeric cytochromes P45017α shows that the structural element responsible for switching activity between ΔD4- or ΔD5-pathway is located in the region of polypeptide chain coded by exons II-V of CYP17 gene.

Adrenal Androgen Biosynthesis with Special Attention to P450c17 a

The use of the human adrenocortical tumor H295 cell line as a model to evaluate mechanisms controlling C19-steroid production is described, finding that the complexity of human adrenal P450c17 expression through multiple signaling pathways may contribute importantly to the diverse patterns of human cortisol-based steroidogenesis.

Ca(2+)-regulated expression of steroid hydroxylases in H295R human adrenocortical cells.

It is concluded that K+ can modulate the expression of key steroidogenic enzymes in H295R cells through the Ca2+ signaling pathway without involvement of the protein kinase A orprotein kinase C signaling pathways.
