Second, patients with mutations of StAR have congenital lipoid adrenal hyperplasia, in which all adrenal and gonadal steroidogenesis is disrupted (4,5). Thus, StAR is needed for the rapid flux of cholesterol from the outer to inner mitochondrial membrane to facilitate acute synthesis of aldosterone following angiotensin II stimulation, of cortisol following ACTH stimulation, and of gonadal sex steroids following LH stimulation. StAR acts exclusively at the outer mitochondrial membrane, but its mechanism of action is not fully understood.
