Description

Human ACTH ELISA Kit

Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) is a peptide hormone that is secreted by the anterior pituitary gland and stimulates the production and release of glucocorticoids from the adrenal cortex. The ACTH is released in response to a stressor, such as an exercise, hypoglycemia, or pain. ACTH plays a key role in the function of the sympathetic nervous system. It is used as a marker for stress and has been associated with the symptoms of chronic stress such as anxiety, depression, and insomnia. The most common cause of ACTH deficiency is surgical removal or destruction of part or all of one or both adrenal glands.
