Farnsworth EB (1950d) Studies on the influence of adrenocorticotrophin in acute nephritis, in simple nephrosis and in nephrosis with azotemia.
A reduction in adrenocorticotrophin (ACTH) and growth hormone (35), (174), (175) reduced cortisol (60), reduced luteinising hormone, reduced follicle stimulating hormone (22), reduced urinary excretion of norepinephrine (28), reduced insulin growth factor-binding protein 3 (IGF-BP3) [40] and altered testosterone:cortisol ratio (21), (33), (40) have also been reported as potential hormonal markers of OT.
Further evidence for the central role of appetite regulation comes from other monogenic defects of the POMC gene, which codes for a number of important proteins including adrenocorticotrophin hormone (ACTH) and melanocortin peptides ([alpha] and [beta] melanocyte stimulating hormone (MSH)).
Adrenocorticotrophin stimulation test: effects of basal cortisol level, time of day, and suggested new sensitive low dose test.
This effect of PTH is attributed to structural similarity between 15-25 amino acid of PTH and 1-11amino acid of adrenocorticotrophin (ACTH) and/or by an indirect action through hypercalcaemia (2).
The effect of smoking on the time course release of catecholamines, corticotrophin releasing hormone (CRH), adrenocorticotrophin hormone (ACTH), and cortisol in pregnancy.
This together with an increased responsiveness of the anterior pituitary gland to CRH causes release of adrenocorticotrophin (ACTH), which in turn acts on the adrenal cortex to stimulate synthesis and release of cortisol, a steroid hormone.
Injection of NOS inhibitors into the PVN (paraventricular nucleus) prevents penile erection responses induced by dopamine agonists, oxytocin, ACTH (adrenocorticotrophin), 5-HT2C (sero-toninergic receptors) agonists in rats (Bredt et al., 1990; Melis and Argiolas, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1997; Melis et al., 1987).
