Abstract: Describes the interactions among pituitary-derived peptides, intra-adrenal exposure to glucocorticoids and the local adrenal and endocrine IGF axes in the growth and functional activation of the ovine fetal adrenal gland before birth. Also considers the involvement of these systems in the fetal response to chronic stess and intra-uterine growth restriction. Proposes and develops several conceptual models of the control of adrenal growth and function in late-gestation.
