Corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) is the principal regulator of the stress response. CRH stimulates production of ACTH via specific CRH receptors located on pituitary corticotropes. In addition to pituitary and central nervous system effects, peripheral effects of CRH have been observed involving the immune and cardiovascular systems. Specific CRH binding studies in several peripheral organs, as well as functional studies, have implied the existence of peripheral CRH receptors. Although a… CONTINUE READING
