Kotelevtsev Y, Holmes M, Burchell A, Houston P, Schmoll D, Jamieson P, et al. 11beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 knockout mice show attenuated glucocorticoid-inducible responses and resist hyperglycemia on obesity or stress. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 1997;94:14924-9 pubmed
..The 11beta-HSD-1 -/- mice were found to resist hyperglycamia provoked by obesity or stress. Attenuation of hepatic 11beta-HSD-1 may provide a novel approach to the regulation of gluconeogenesis. ..
