Introduction: Corticotropin releasing hormone

Description of Corticotropin releasing hormone

Corticotropin releasing hormone: 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.
