QuestionAnswer
responsible for the conversion of corticosterone to aldosterone
A baby born with 21 hydroxylase deficiency will have _____ mineralocorticoid and glucocorticoid levels.
catalyzes the conversion of progesterone to 11-deoxycorticosterone
True or False: A baby born with 11B hydroxylase deficiency will have increased androgen production leading to ambiguous genitalia in females
catalyzes the conversion of cortisol to cortisone so that it can be inactivated
melanocortin receptor that binds ACTH stimulating steroidogenesis
True or False: Cortisol decreases red blood cell production.
these 2 enzymes catalze the conversion of pregnenolone to progesterone
conversion of cholesterol to pregenolone takes place in what organelle
True or False: 17 a hydroxylase deficiency causes increased blood pressure
True or False: overstimulation of cortisol can cause diabetes.
True or False: 17 a hydroxylase deficiency causes increased androgens in the blood
can cause ambiguous genitalia in males and absent puberty in females because androgens are not able to be made. can occur as a result of defective CYP17

Primary Addison's disease is caused by a deficiency of ____.
CAH characterized by salt wasting, normal glucocorticoids, normal androgens, and low blood pressure
Secondary Addison's disease is caused by a deficiency of ____.
conversion of 11-deoxycortisol to cortisol is catalyzed by what enzyme
A baby born with21 hydroxylase deficiency has ___ blood pressure.
this congential adrenal hyperplasia occurs as a result of defective CYP11B2
Gene responsible for encoding 21 hydroxylase
Cortisol cause an increase in gluconeogensis and a _____ in glucose uptake.
Gene responsible for encoding 3B hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase
True or False: Cortisol levels generally peak around midnight.
no steroids are made in this disorder
hormone disorder chasracterized by high levels of ACTH. Patients generally have a redistribution of fat to the truncal areas of the body, with muscle wasting at the extremties
