Title: Molecular identity and gene expression of aldosterone synthase cytochrome P450

Abstract

11{beta}-Hydroxylase (CYP11B1) of bovine adrenal cortex produced corticosterone as well as aldosterone from 11-deoxycorticosterone in the presence of the mitochondrial P450 electron transport system. CYP11B1s of pig, sheep, and bullfrog, when expressed in COS-7 cells, also performed corticosterone and aldosterone production. Since these CYP11B1s are present in the zonae fasciculata and reticularis as well as in the zona glomerulosa, the zonal differentiation of steroid production may occur by the action of still-unidentified factor(s) on the enzyme-catalyzed successive oxygenations at C11- and C18-positions of steroid. In contrast, two cDNAs, one encoding 11{beta}-hydroxylase and the other encoding aldosterone synthase (CYP11B2), were isolated from rat, mouse, hamster, guinea pig, and human adrenals. The expression of CYP11B1 gene was regulated by cyclic AMP (cAMP)-dependent signaling, whereas that of CYP11B2 gene by calcium ion-signaling as well as cAMP-signaling. Salt-inducible protein kinase, a cAMP-induced novel protein kinase, was one of the regulators of CYP11B2 gene expression.
