corticotropin releasing hormone

Gene Summary

Enables corticotropin-releasing hormone receptor 1 binding activity and corticotropin-releasing hormone receptor 2 binding activity. Involved in several processes, including regulation of ion transport; regulation of secretion by cell; and response to glucocorticoid. Located in several cellular components, including extracellular space; perikaryon; and varicosity. Used to study hypoglycemia and obesity. Biomarker of several diseases, including alcohol use disorder; cerebrovascular disease (multiple); extrahepatic cholestasis; sciatic neuropathy; and withdrawal disorder. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity and panic disorder. Orthologous to human CRH (corticotropin releasing hormone). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
