Saffran, Grad and Bayliss (1952) were the first to demonstrate the stimulation by ACTH of the production of adrenocortical hormones by the rat adrenal cortex in vitro. This finding was followed by a number of investigations into the nature of adrenocortical function. In this thesis a series of experiments is reported that were undertaken to obtain more information concerning the metabolism in vitro of the adrenal cortex, and, if possible, to define the significance of ascorbic acid for the adrenocortical function.
