Cold inducible RNA binding protein upregulation in pituitary corticotropin adenoma induces corticotroph cell proliferation via Erk signaling pathway.
However, the PPAR-[gamma]-mediated Pomc regulation mechanism has not yet been clarified in pituitary corticotroph cells. Moreover, preclinical studies conducted both in vitro and in vivo have provided the evidence of anticancer properties of particular PPAR-[gamma] agonists, rosiglitazone and pioglitazone.
The same attempt made by the corticotroph cells to overcome cortisol deficiency is (unsuccessfully) performed by the gonadotroph cells, which produce high amounts of luteinizing (LH) and follicle-stimulating (FSH) hormone in response to undetectable sex hormone levels.
Adiponectin had also a stimulatory effect on ACTH secretion in the primary culture of pituitary cells via an AMPK-dependent mechanism in the rat's pituitary corticotroph cells [63].
After being stimulated, neurons of the paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus release corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH), which will be transported by hypothalamic-pituitary portal circulation and stimulate pituitary corticotroph cells to cleave proopiomelanocortin (POMC) in adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) [12].
