  • Target

    • Function
      Preferentially catalyzes the conversion of 11-deoxycorticosterone to aldosterone via corticosterone and 18-hydroxycorticosterone.
    • Involvement in disease
      Defects in CYP11B2 are the cause of corticosterone methyloxidase type 1 deficiency (CMO-1 deficiency) [MIM:203400]; also known as aldosterone deficiency due to defect in 18-hydroxylase or aldosterone deficiency I. CMO-1 deficiency is an autosomal recessive disorder of aldosterone biosynthesis. There are two biochemically different forms of selective aldosterone deficiency be termed corticosterone methyloxidase (CMO) deficiency type 1 and type 2. In CMO-1 deficiency, aldosterone is undetectable in plasma, while its immediate precursor, 18-hydroxycorticosterone, is low or normal.
      Defects in CYP11B2 are the cause of corticosterone methyloxidase type 2 deficiency (CMO-2 deficiency) [MIM:610600]. CMO-2 is an autosomal recessive disorder of aldosterone biosynthesis. In CMO-2 deficiency, aldosterone can be low or normal, but at the expense of increased secretion of 18-hydroxycorticosterone. Consequently, patients have a greatly increased ratio of 18-hydroxycorticosterone to aldosterone and a low ratio of corticosterone to 18-hydroxycorticosterone in serum.
      Defects in CYP11B2 are a cause of familial hyperaldosteronism type 1 (FH1) [MIM:103900]. It is a disorder characterized by hypertension, variable hyperaldosteronism, and abnormal adrenal steroid production, including 18-oxocortisol and 18-hydroxycortisol. There is significant phenotypic heterogeneity, and some individuals never develop hypertension. Note=The molecular defect causing hyperaldosteronism familial type 1 is an anti-Lepore-type fusion of the CYP11B1 and CYP11B2 genes. The hybrid gene has the promoting part of CYP11B1, ACTH-sensitive, and the coding part of CYP11B2.
