Human adrenal cortical cells are derived from human adrenal cortical tissue. The fetal adrenal cortex consists of two zones, the fetal and definitive adult zones, while the adult adrenal cortex comprises three distinct zones: the outer zona glomerulosa, the central zona fasciculata, and the inner zona reticularis. These cells are organized in cord-like structures that span from the adrenal capsule to the medulla, surrounded by an extensive network of capillaries. The zona glomerulosa cells are round and smaller in size compared to the polyhedral cells of the zona fasciculata, which gradually transition into the zona reticularis. The zona reticularis contains cells similar in appearance to those in the zona fasciculata, as well as a smaller cell type. Adrenocortical cells possess the ability to secrete cytokines, active peptides, and hormones. They also interact with cytokines (TNFb, IL-1, IL-6) and peptides (VIP) released by macrophages within the adrenal cortex.

Human adrenal cortical cells have diverse applications in adrenal studies. They serve as a valuable model for investigating adrenal disorders like adrenal insufficiency, Cushing’s syndrome, Conn’s syndrome, and adrenocortical carcinoma. By studying these cells, researchers can unravel the molecular and biochemical mechanisms that control adrenal steroidogenesis. This knowledge can lead to better diagnostics and targeted therapies. Moreover, human adrenal cortical cells provide a platform to explore the effects of chemicals on adrenal hormone synthesis. Researchers can assess how various compounds impact hormone production, shedding light on the influence of external factors on adrenal function.
