receptors, corticotropin

cell surface receptors that bind corticotropin (acth, adrenocorticotropic hormone) with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes. Pharmacology suggests there may be multiple acth receptors. An acth receptor has been cloned and belongs to a subfamily of g-protein-coupled receptors. In addition to the adrenal cortex, acth receptors are found in the brain and immune systems.
