Name Adrenocorticotropic Hormone
Equivalent Terms 1-39 ACTH | ACTH | ACTH (1-39) | Adrenocorticotrophic Hormone | Adrenocorticotropin | Corticotrophin | Corticotrophin (1-39) | Corticotropin | Corticotropin (1-39) | Hormone, Adrenocorticotrophic | Hormone, Adrenocorticotropic
CAS Registry Number 9002-60-2
Definition An anterior pituitary hormone that stimulates the ADRENAL CORTEX and its production of CORTICOSTEROIDS. ACTH is a 39-amino acid polypeptide of which the N-terminal 24-amino acid segment is identical in all species and contains the adrenocorticotrophic activity. Upon further tissue-specific processing, ACTH can yield ALPHA-MSH and corticotrophin-like intermediate lobe peptide (CLIP).
