The demand for aldosterone decreases, for example, under chronic excessive ACTH stimulation, as occurs in some animals with implanted pituitary tumors, when the amount of DOC secreted by the zona fasciculata increases sufficiently to satisfy the mineralocorticoid requirement of the animal (Nickerson, Brownie and Molten, 1970; Nickerson, 1975). The glomerulosa may become limited to foci under the capsule, no longer forming a continuous layer (Neville and O'Hare, 1982; Payet and Lehoux, 1982). This indicates that under the combined effect of chronic overstimulation with ACTH and lack of glomerulosa stimulation the critical point in the gradient has moved outward to reach the capsule itself.
