ACTH - Rabbit polyclonalBSB 5015-BSB 5021
Adrenocorticotropic Hormone (ACTH or corticotropin) is a polypeptide hormone synthesized from POMC, (Pro-opiomelanocortin) and secreted from corticotropes in the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland in response to Corticotropin-releasing Hormone (CRH) released by the hypothalamus. It consists of 39 amino acids. ACTH is a useful marker in the classification of pituitary tumors and the study of pituitary disease. It reacts with ACTH-producing cells (corticotrophs), as well as other tumors (e.g.,some Small-Cell Carcinomas present in lung tissue) causing Paraneoplastic Syndromes by secreting ACTH.
Available options include prediluted (3ml, 7 ml, 15ml), concentrate (0.1 ml, 0.5ml, 1ml) and 5+ control slides.
