High systemic 11beta-HSD2 activity in preeclampsia but not in intrauterine growth retardation suggests an increased cortisol deactivation in maternal tissue in preeclampsia rather than in the placenta.
Analyses demonstrated a trend in the association between maternal trait anxiety and depression symptoms with placental gene expression of NR3C1. We found a significant interaction with maternal ethnicity. In Caucasians only, prenatal trait anxiety and depressive symptoms were associated with an increase in placental NR3C1 expression, and prenatal life events were associated with a down regulation of HSD11B2
mutations that allow the formation of an inactive dimer, alter substrate/coenzyme binding, or impair structural stability of HSD11B2 yield severe apparent mineralocorticoid excess (AME). In contrast, mutations that cause an indirect disruption of substrate binding or mildly alter intramolecular interactions result in type 2 AME.
Six sequence variations were observed. Four mutations were indicated in the coding region of HSD11B2 and the other two in 3'-UTR. Two SNPs: c.468C > A and c.534G > A were found to be in total disequilibrium. High variability in HSD11B2 sequence was indicated in the study population, but the relevance of observed SNPs to gestational hypertension or pre-eclampsia development was not confirmed.

Review of the role of HSD11B2 in pregnancy complications, fetal diseases, and later life morbidity.
Since increased DNA methylation in HSD11B2 and FKBP5 are seen in a minority of bisulfite sequencing clones, these epigenetic changes, and functional consequences, may affect subpopulations of placental cells.
significant positive correlation between DNA methylation of 11beta-HSD2 CpG 1 in infants and maternal sensitivity.
These results indicate that the effects of maternal protein restriction on placental 11beta-HSD2 expression are gender-dependent in the pig, and thyroid hormones may be involved in such effects.

The amount of 11beta-HSD 2 in germ cells was greatest at birth, decreased thereafter and was absent after Week 3.
Data show that in the testis, caput epididymidis and bulbourethral gland of the immature pig, 11betaHSD1 and 2 catalyse inactivation of cortisol, supporting a role in limiting local actions of glucocorticoids within these tissues prior to puberty.

The activation of mineralocorticoid receptors in mice deficient in Apolipoprotein E and 11beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 2 and subsequent athersclerosis are reported.
There are at least two isozymes of the corticosteroid 11-beta-dehydrogenase, a microsomal enzyme complex responsible for the interconversion of cortisol and cortisone. The type I isozyme has both 11-beta-dehydrogenase (cortisol to cortisone) and 11-oxoreductase (cortisone to cortisol) activities. The type II isozyme, encoded by this gene, has only 11-beta-dehydrogenase activity. In aldosterone-selective epithelial tissues such as the kidney, the type II isozyme catalyzes the glucocorticoid cortisol to the inactive metabolite cortisone, thus preventing illicit activation of the mineralocorticoid receptor. In tissues that do not express the mineralocorticoid receptor, such as the placenta and testis, it protects cells from the growth-inhibiting and/or pro-apoptotic effects of cortisol, particularly during embryonic development. Mutations in this gene cause the syndrome of apparent mineralocorticoid excess and hypertension.
