  • Long-time incubations. Spine number in calbindin-labeled PC (red, 7 div) in controls (a), after MLTI (b), MLTI combined with AG205 (c), and MLTI plus trilostane (d); 4d 4 days. Analysis of PC spine number in cell cultures treated with mifepristone in combination with progesterone, AG205, and trilostane at different developmental ages.

    In Senegalese sole both recombinant gonadotropins stimulate testosterone and 11-KT production in vitro. The amounts of testosterone and 11-KT were measured in incubation media after 24 h of exposure of testis explants at stage I–II or III to 100 ng/ml of rFsh and rLh, in the presence or absence of 5 uM of inhibitors of the cAMP/PKA pathway (MDL and H-89 respectively) and Hsd-3β (TRIL). Values (mean±S.E.M.) are from three independent experiments on three different males, each with three replicates per condition. Asterisks denote significant differences (P<0.01) with respect to the groups treated with the inhibitors, or as indicated.

  • Effects of inhibitors of adenylyl cyclase (MDL-12330A; MDL), PKA (H-89), or 3b -Hsd (TRIL) on gonadotropin-stimulated androgen release by Senegalese sole testicular explants. Amounts of T ( A) and 11-KT (B) measured in incubation media after 24 h of exposure to 250 ng/ml rFsh or rLh, and in combination with 1 or 5 lM MDL-12330A, H-89, or TRIL. Values (mean 6 SEM) represent compiled data from two experiments on two different males, each with three replicates per condition.

    Hepatocytes were pre-treated with vehicle or 10 μM Trilostane for 1 h, followed by the addition of 100 μM DHEA for 24 h. Triglyceride content was determined using commercial kits; samples were stained with Oil Red O and photomicrographs were taken to determine the accumulation of lipid droplets, and protein expression of AMPKα, p-AMPKα, ACCα, and p-ACCαwas determined by western blot. E: Immunoblot of AMPKα, p-AMPKα, ACCα, and p-ACCα expression; F: p-AMPK/AMPK protein expression; G: p-ACC/ACC protein expression. Values represent mean ± SE. **P < 0.01 and *P < 0.05, compared to the respective control group.

  • Effect of the steroidogenesis inhibitor TRIL on gonadotropin-induced androgen production and aquaporin transcriptional regulation in vitro. (A, C-D, J) Amounts of T (A, C, J) and 11-KT (D) released into the incubation media by explants at the resting, spermatogenic and spermiation stages after 24 h exposure to 100 ng/ml rFsh or rLh, or hormone vehicle (control; C), in the presence or absence of 5 μM TRIL. (B, E-H, K-L) Effect of TRIL on rFsh and rLh-induced aquaporin gene expression during spermatogenesis. Data are represented as in Fig 3. Dashed line at mRNA level 1 indicates no change with respect time zero. Values (mean ± S.E.M.) represent compiled data from two experiments on two different pools of males or individual males, each with three replicates per treatment. *, P < 0.05; **, P < 0.01, with respect the control group not treated with TRIL, or as indicated in brackets.

Biological Activity

Description Trilostane (WIN 24540) is an inhibitor of 3β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase used in the treatment of Cushing’s syndrome.
3 β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase [1]
In vitro

Both Trilostane and 4-Hydroxy tamoxifen (OHT) affects transcription of genes involved in cell cycle regulation, cell adhesion and matrix formation, however, only 12.5% of Trilostane down-regulated genes and 9.2% of up-regulated genes are similarly regulated by OHT in MCF-7 cells.?sup>[1]

In vivo Trilostane treatment results in a significant decline in basal plasma cortisol concentrations in dogs. Trilostane treatment results in an insignificant decrease in plasma aldosterone concentration (PAC), but the median plasma renin activity (PRA) at the time the trilostane dosage is considered optimal (265 fmol/L/s, range 70-3280 fmol/L/s; n=18) is significantly higher than prior to treatment (115 fmol/L/s, range 15-1330 fmol/L/s). Trilostane affects both the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenocortical and the renin-aldosterone axes. [2] Trilostane effectively blocks the increase in systolic blood pressure and reverses the hypertension produced by drinking 0.9% saline in the Dahlsalt-sensitive rat. Trilostane is equally effective in female and male rats. [3] Trilostane reduces clinical signs and improves endocrine test results in all cats, but insulin requirements does not change and all continued to have some signs of hypercortisolemia. [4] Trilostane results in a reduction in serum cortisol and aldosteroneconcentrations in dogs with PDH, although the decrease for serum aldosterone concentration is smaller than that for serum cortisol concentration.

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:

Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
