adrenocortical

pertaining to or arising from the cortex of the adrenal gland.

adrenocortical hormones
any of the corticosteroids elaborated by the adrenal cortex, the major ones being the glucocorticoids and mineralocorticoids, and including some androgens, progesterone and perhaps estrogens. See also corticosteroid.
adrenocortical hyperplasia
may be bilateral, resulting from stimulation by a functional corticotropic adenoma of the pars distalis or the pars intermedia of the pituitary gland. See hyperadrenocorticism.
adrenocortical neoplasms
adenomas usually do not cause clinical signs and are incidental findings at autopsy. Carcinomas are highly invasive of surrounding tissues and into the caudal vena cava. Rarely, adrenal neoplasms are functional and may cause signs of hyperadrenocorticism.

corticoadrenal, adrenocortical

pertaining to the adrenal cortex.

In this study, we found that MAB 391, a monoclonal antibody of IGF-1R, significantly suppressed phosphorylation of ERK1/2 and AKT costimulated by Ang II and IGF-1 in H295R cells, suggesting that IGF-1 exerted its effect predominantly through IGF-1R in adrenocortical cells.

Por otro lado, el uso de regulacion emocional y afrontamiento efectivo, disminuyen la necesidad de activacion adrenocortical en respuesta a estimulos estresantes, por ejemplo, en recien nacidos entre 1 a 6 dias de edad, aquellos con alta orientacion a los estimulos tenian un menor incremento o no tenian ningun incremento del cortisol en respuesta a estresores leves, pues al parecer usaron esta habilidad como una estrategia de afrontamiento conductual a diferencia de los que tenian baja orientacion que mostraron marcado incremento del cortisol (Spangler & Grossmann, 1993).
