GO term:corticotropin-releasing hormone activity
Synonym: adrenocorticotropin-releasing hormone
GO id:GO:0017045
Definition:The action characteristic of corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH), any of a number of peptides released by the mammalian hypothalamus into the hypophyseal-portal circulation in response to neural and/or chemical stimuli. Upon receptor binding, CRH increases the rate of corticotropin secretion by the anterior pituitary.
