- n. a hormone produced by the anterior pituitary gland that stimulates the adrenal cortex
Sorry, no etymologies found.
This hormone then travels to another nearby area of the brain, the pituitary, where it causes the release of adrenocorticotrophic hormone ACTH, which in turn travels through the body’s circulation to the adrenals—the small glands that sit on top of the kidneys.
