Abstract

There is evidence for the existence in the posterior pituitary and hypothalamus of several CRFs. One of these resembles vasopressin in size and structure. Another is loosely related chemically to αMSH. More recently, a third CRF came to light. It is larger than the other two. Although vasopressin can release ACTH under certain circumstances, it is not likely that vasopressin is the physiologic ACTH-releasing hormone.
