The control by angiotensin II of cholesterol supply for aldosterone biosynthesis.


In the adrenal glomerulosa cell, aldosterone is synthesized from cholesterol, which is supplied to the cell and stored under the form of cholesterol esters, then hydrolyzed to be transferred to the mitochondrial outer membrane and finally transported to the inner membrane where the P450 side-chain cleavage enzyme will convert it to pregnenolone.
