abstract

  • Although patients with salt-wasting 21-hydroxylase deficiency have functionally equivalent mutations in their CYP21 genes, they may vary from one another and over time in their ability to produce mineralocorticoids. This variation may be attributable to another adrenal enzyme with 21-hydroxylase activity.
