Gene: Crh (corticotropin releasing hormone) Mus musculus
Symbol: Crh
Name: corticotropin releasing hormone
Description: This gene encodes a member of the corticotropin-releasing factor family and preproprotein that is proteolytically processed to generate a mature protein product. This protein product is a neuropeptide hormone that binds to the corticotropin releasing hormone receptors (CRHR1 and CRHR2) to stimulate the release of adrenocorticotropic hormone from the pituitary gland in response to stress. The encoded protein may also regulate angiogenesis and inflammation. Homozygous knockout mice for this gene exhibit reduced corticosterone levels while the offspring of these mice die perinatally.
