Description:

Adrenocorticotropic hormone, as its name implies, stimulates the adrenal cortex. More specifically, it stimulates secretion of glucocorticoids such as cortisol, and has little control over secretion of aldosterone, the other major steroid hormone from the adrenal cortex. It stimulates secretion of adrenal corticosteroids, induces growth of the adrenal cortex, and directly activates G-proteins. It is a stimulator of adenylate cyclase and cAMP formation.
