Corticotropin receptors, cyclic AMP and steroidogenesis.


The detection and characterization of the physiologically relevant receptors for corticotropin (ACTH) in rat adrenocortical cells is described. By the use of a radioligand with full biological potency and high specific radioactivity (1800 +/- 75 Ci/mmol), a single class of receptors with an apparent Kd of 1.41 +/- 0.21 nM was detected and the number of… (More)
