  • CALCIUM is thought to be required for the binding of adrenal corticotrophic hormone (ACTH) to its cellular receptor1–5: in its absence, ACTH fails to stimulate steroidogenesis in the adrenal or lipolysis in adipose tissue1,2,6,7. The actions of other lipolytic hormones such as adrenaline and glucagon do not require calcium1–3. On the other hand, high calcium concentrations (>1 mM) inhibit the activation of adenyl cyclase by ACTH in subcellular particles from adipose and adrenal tissue8,9. The… CONTINUE READING
