Extra Details:
Cortisone (C21H28O5, Kendall's Compound ‘E') was identified by Mason, Myers and Kendall in 1936 as Compound E extracted from bovine suprarenal gland tissue that had the qualitative but not quantitative activity of cortin. The presence of multiple cortin-like compounds led the authors to speculate that the study of Compound E would reveal the nature of cortin (1). Compound E is now called cortisone and the more active Compound F, cortisol, and the concentrations of these two glucocorticoids vary due to the activity of two 11ß-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenases (11-HSD) (2,3). While most tissues have the ability to express either enzyme, 11ß-HSD1 is found primarily in the liver where it converts cortisone to cortisol while 11ß-HSD2 is found in tissues such as the kidney where cortisol receptor binding is required. 11ß-HSD2 deactivates cortisol to cortisone, prohibiting receptor activation. This glucocorticoid “shuttle” helps to initiate and regulate the anti-inflammatory response, making cortisone one of the modern “wonder drugs”. onitoring the ratio of cortisone:cortisol has applications in diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome, osteoporosis, and chronic fatigue syndrome in addition to adrenal diseases (4-7). Cortisone and cortisol concentrations exhibit a predictable diurnal pattern and can be measured in extracted dried feces, or in serum, plasma, saliva and urine. A recent publication (8) has suggested that salivary cortisone is a good surrogate marker for serum cortisol.
