a Corticosterone generation in tibia ex vivo biopsies isolated from WT and 11β-HSD1 KO mice determined by scanning thin-layer chromatography. b Serum corticosterone levels determined by ELISA in WT and 11β-HSD1 KO receiving either vehicle or oral corticosterone (100 μg/ml). c Adrenal weights (mg) from WT and 11β-HSD1 KO mice receiving either vehicle or oral corticosterone (100 μg/ml) and d representative paraffin-embedded sections of the liver taken from WT mice receiving either vehicle or oral corticosterone (100 μg/ml) (× 20), stained with haematoxylin and eosin. Values are expressed as mean ± standard error of six animals per group. Statistical significance was determined using two-way ANOVA with a Bonferroni correction. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001
