Injury To Adrenal Cortex Is Not Likely To Affect The Biology Question

Injury to adrenal cortex is not likely to affect the secretion of which one of the following?

Options

(a) Aldosterone
(b) Both Androstenedione and Dehydroepiandrosterone
(c) Adrenaline
(d) Cortisol

Correct Answer:

Adrenaline

Explanation:

Adrenal gland has two parts-cortex and medulla. The medulla is stimulated by sympathetic nervous tissue to produce adrenaline and non-adrenaline while the cortex is stimulated by pituitary hormone to release cortisol, aldosterone and estrogens. Thus injury to adrenal cortex is not likely to affect the secretion of adrenaline.
