11b-HSD enzyme functions (1)

Hi I think the 11b-HSD enzyme functions are the wrong way around? 11b-HSD1 activates cortisone into cortisol (with minor inactivating activity) and 11b-HSD2 inactivates cortisol to cortisone. Thanks!

Hi Claire,

Would you happen to have a reference where I can check your comment? Then I can adapt accordingly in the pathway, and underpin the change with a reference. You're also allowed to make these changes yourself. If you need any help, let me know!

Kind regards,

Hi Denise,

Sure, this paper should cover it Kotelevtsev et al., 11beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 knockout mice show attenuated glucocorticoid-inducible responses and resist hyperglycemia on obesity or stress. PNAS 1997 [1]

Also I tried to edit the pathway myself but was unable to upload it sorry! I got an error message saying something about not having right permissions/account (afraid I can't remember exact wording)

Many thanks,
