Mining the steroid metabolome in adrenal hormone excess

Arlt Wiebke

The adrenals are at the centre of the steroid universe, with the adrenal cortex producing aldosterone, cortisol and the adrenal androgen precursors DHEA and androstenedione. Hormone excess (or deficiency) is a characteristic feature of the majority of adrenal diseases and recent years have seen major progress in dissecting adrenal steroid excess through novel approaches. This includes steroid metabolomics, the mass spectrometry-based analysis of steroid production in conjuncti...
