Adrenocorticotropic hormone, commonly referred to as ACTH and also known as corticotropin, is a polypeptide hormone produced in and secreted by the anterior pituitary gland. It is a key component in the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, often produced in response to exogenous biological stress along with corticotropin-releasing hormone (which is also from the hypothalamus.) Its effects include increased production and release of corticosteroids and, as its name suggests, cortisol from the adrenal cortex.
