Rabbit anti Rat ACTH antibody recognizes human adrenocorticotrophin (ACTH), a 39 amino acid cleavage product from pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) which elicits a classic glucocorticoid response from the adrenal glands in situations of stress. ACTH is produced in the pituitary, and also by lymphocytes and macrophages.

This antibody does not react with oxytocin, dynorphin, Met-enkephalin, insulin, glucagon, Leu-enkephalin, somatostatin, TRH, ANFa or LHRH.
