Tissue-specific alterations of glucocorticoid metabolism in ob/ob mice

Livingstone D , Packer S , Kerr R , Morton N , Walker B , Andrew R

Glucocorticoid metabolism is altered in a tissue-specific manner in obesity. Increased reactivation of glucocorticoids by 11beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11HSD1) amplifies glucocorticoid action in abdominal fat, whereas increased metabolism of glucocorticoids by hepatic A-ring reductases may contribute to activation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. These changes have been characterised in leptin-resistant obese Zucker rats and obese humans. Here we inves...
