- HMDB0000063 (Cortisol)
- Corticotropin Activation of Cortisol Production
- it is produced from the cleavage of pre-pro-opiomelanocortin by various endopeptidases, along with other physiologically active peptide fragments such as β-lipotropin, γ-lipotropin, melanocyte stimulating hormone (msh) and β-endorphin. it is an important component of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and is often produced in response to biological stress.
