Chemical Corticotropin-Releasing Hormone

Name Corticotropin-Releasing Hormone
Equivalent Terms ACTH Releasing Factor | ACTH-Releasing Factor | ACTH Releasing Hormone | ACTH-Releasing Hormone | Corticoliberin | Corticotropin Releasing Factor | Corticotropin-Releasing Factor | Corticotropin Releasing Factor 41 | Corticotropin-Releasing Factor-41 | Corticotropin Releasing Hormone | Corticotropin Releasing Hormone 41 | Corticotropin-Releasing Hormone-41 | CRF-41 | CRF (ACTH)
CAS Registry Number 9015-71-8
Definition A peptide of about 41 amino acids that stimulates the release of ADRENOCORTICOTROPIC HORMONE. CRH is synthesized by neurons in the PARAVENTRICULAR NUCLEUS of the HYPOTHALAMUS. After being released into the pituitary portal circulation, CRH stimulates the release of ACTH from the PITUITARY GLAND. CRH can also be synthesized in other tissues, such as PLACENTA; ADRENAL MEDULLA; and TESTIS.
