A detailed hypothesis of the regulation of adrenal androgen synthesis by control of reticularis width is not currently feasible. The mechanism by which such a steroid gradient might result in a fasciculata/reticularis transition remains speculative (Anderson, 1980; Hornsby and Crivello, 1983). However, it may be assumed that, as for the glomerulosa/fasciculata boundary, there is a critical concentration in the gradient that results in the transition. In the human, the presence of inner zones (reticularis or fetal cortex) is associated with large adrenal glands.
