Cytochrome P450 11B2, mitochondrial (CYP11B2 aka aldosterone hydroxylase) is an enzyme necessary for aldosterone biosynthesis via corticosterone (CORST) and 18-hydroxycorticosterone (18HCORST). Defects in CYP11B2 results in disorders of aldosterone synthesis. Corticosterone methyloxidase 1 and 2 deficiencies (CMO-1; MIM:203400 and CMO-2 deficiency; MIM:61060) are autosomal recessive disorders of aldosterone biosynthesis (Mitsuuchi et al. 1993, Bureik et al. 2002). In CMO-1 deficiency, aldosterone is undetectable in plasma, while its immediate precursor, 18HCORST, is low or normal. In CMO-2 deficiency, aldosterone can be low or normal, but at the expense of increased secretion of 18HCORST. Patients with CMO-2 deficiency have elevated plasma 18-hydroxycorticosterone/aldosterone ratios.
