receptors, corticotropin-releasing hormone

cell surface proteins that bind corticotropin-releasing hormone with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes which influence the behaviour of cells. The corticotropin releasing-hormone receptors on anterior pituitary cells mediate the stimulation of corticotropin release by hypothalamic corticotropin releasing factor. The physiological consequence of activating corticotropin-releasing hormone receptors on central neurons is not well understood.
