adrenocorticotrophic hormone

İngilizce - Türkçe

ADRENOCORTICOTROPHIC HORMONE
Adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH), also known as corticotrophin, is a hormone produced by the anterior pituitary gland in the brain. It plays a crucial role in regulating the body's response to stress and is involved in the production and release of cortisol from the adrenal gland. When the body experiences stress, the hypothalamus in the brain releases corticotrophin-releasing hormone (CRH), which signals the anterior pituitary gland to release ACTH. ACTH then stimulates the adrenal gland to produce and release cortisol, which helps the body cope with stress by increasing blood sugar levels, suppressing the immune system, and regulating blood pressure.

ACTH levels in the blood can be measured as part of the diagnostic workup for certain medical conditions, such as adrenal insufficiency and Cushing's syndrome. In some cases, ACTH can also be used as a medication to treat these conditions.
