ACTH 1-39: Adrenocorticotropic Hormone
ACTH 1-39, also known as Adrenocorticotropic hormone, is a peptide containing 39 amino acids. Its primary effects have been observed in research involving the endogenous melanocortin receptors agonist, which stimulates cell surfaces, leading to the secretion of androgenic and corticosteroids. The molecular formula of ACTH 1-39 is C207H308N56O58S, and it belongs to the peptide/protein hormone class. The molecular mass of this peptide is 4541.11.
Initial research in the 1930s centred on adrenal cortex stimulation, with the protein being synthesized in 1963. ACTH 1-39 acts on muscular endogenous melanocortin receptors, stimulating cell surfaces and leading to the secretion of corticosteroids and androgenic steroids. It has been found to play a significant role in the abnormal development of metabolic syndrome and activity through the HPA stress axis.
ACTH 1-39 is occasionally referred to by its name alone.
