ACTH (4-10) (POMC, Adrenocorticotropin, beta Lipotropin, alpha (beta) Melanocyte Stimulating Hormone, CLIP, Corticotropin-lipotropin precursor, LPH, MSH, NPP, POC, Pro-opiomelanocortin)
Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), also known as corticotropin, is a polypeptide tropic hormone produced and secreted by the anterior pituitary gland. It is an important component of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and is often produced in response to biological stress (along with its precursor corticotropin-releasing hormone from the hypothalamus). Its principal effects are increased production and release of corticosteroids. A deficiency of ACTH is a cause of secondary adrenal insufficiency and an excess of it is a cause of Cushing\'s disease.
