Assay Principle
Intra-assay Precision (Precision within an assay): CV%<15%      
Three samples of known concentration were tested twenty times on one plate to assess.  
Inter-assay Precision (Precision between assays): CV%<15%      
Three samples of known concentration were tested in twenty assays to assess.    
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples were spiked with high concentrations of mouse CRF in various matrices and diluted with the Sample Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

Target Background

(From Uniprot)
Hormone regulating the release of corticotropin from pituitary gland. Induces NLRP6 in intestinal epithelial cells, hence may influence gut microbiota profile.
Gene References into Functions
  1. Hypothalamic CRH-expressing neurons orchestrate complex behaviors after stress. PMID: 27306314
  2. Mice lacking corticotropin-releasing hormone, had an improved ability to escape away from potentially dangerous situations. PMID: 28786031
  3. our results suggest an inhibitory role of miR-212 on the HPA axis, which acts in a counter-regulatory manner. PMID: 28912247
  4. Study shows that prolactin was sufficient to suppress corticotrophin-releasing hormone (CRH) mRNA expression in the paraventricular nucleus, however it does not appear to be required for the ongoing regulation of the CRH neurones in lactation. PMID: 28744978
  5. Study blocked endogenous CRH using 2 chemically distinct antagonists of the principal hippocampal CRH receptor, CRHR1. The antagonists caused a modest reduction of spontaneous excitatory transmission onto CA3 pyramidal cells, mediated. This was accompanied by a decrease in incidence but not amplitude of sharp waves, indicating that CRH synaptic actions are sufficient to alter the output of a complex hippocampal network. PMID: 28460009
  6. Mice exposed to aggressive confrontations exhibited a similar pattern of species-typical aggressive and non-aggressive behaviors on the first and the last session. Repeated aggressive confrontations promoted an increase in plasma corticosterone. After 10 aggressive confrontation sessions, mice presented a non-significant trend toward reducing hippocampal levels of CRF, which inversely correlated with plasma corticosterone PMID: 28614436
  7. Data (including data from studies in transgenic mice) suggest that Crh alters Gnrh neuron activity and that estradiol is required for Crh to exert both stimulatory and inhibitory effects on Gnrh neurons. (Crh = corticotropin-releasing hormone; Gnrh = gonadotropin releasing hormone) PMID: 29069304
  8. The activation of parvalbumin(+) interneurons during morphine withdrawal was crucial for the induction of the negative emotion and the up-regulation of CRH mRNA levels in the central amygdala. PMID: 27385383

  13. activation of the Gq-membrane-associated estrogen receptors rapidly stimulates hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus CRH neurons by suppressing the M-current and potentiating glutamatergic neurotransmission PMID: 27387482
  14. Data describe a missing function of the stress hormone Crh in the regulation of autophagy activation and present evidence that this effect is linked to maintenance of gut homeostasis under basal conditions. PMID: 26987580
  15. Real-time PCR analyses revealed that social defeat significantly increased corticotropin-releasing hormone in the paraventricular nucleus. PMID: 25219790
  16. Data suggest a physiologically relevant role for local corticotropin-releasing hormone signaling towards shaping the neuronal circuitry within the mouse olfactory bulb. PMID: 25224546
  17. results suggest that long-term, post-natal CRF over-expression increases the rewarding effects of cocaine in individuals with high emotional response to stress. PMID: 25094033
  18. Knockdown of CRF synthesis in the ventral tegmental area prevented interpeduncular intermediate activation and anxiety during nicotine withdrawal. PMID: 25898242

  20. it is shown that CRH and UCN upregulate galectin-1 expression in Ishikawa cell line and macrophages and this effect is mediated through CRHR1. PMID: 25473847
  21. CRF overexpression throughout the CNS increased startle magnitude and reduced ability to inhibit startle. CRF overexpression confined to inhibitory neurons decreased startle magnitude but had no effect on inhibitory measures. PMID: 25575243
  22. The stress response neuropeptide CRF increases amyloid-beta production by regulating gamma-secretase activity. PMID: 25964433
  23. These data suggest critical roles for CRF and CRFR1 in tau-P and aggregation and may have implications for the development of Alzheimer disease cognitive decline. PMID: 25125464
  24. Study of sex- and genotype-dependent effects of a short, acute predator odor exposure on CRF mRNA levels in stress-related brain regions and subsequently changes in spatial memory retrieval in male and female GAD67 mice and their wildtype littermates PMID: 24946072
  25. Chronic nicotine exposure upregulates corticotropin releasing factor mRNA in dopaminergic neurons of the posterior ventral tegmental area. PMID: 25402857
  26. Findings suggest that forebrain-specific overexpression of CRF (CRFOE) limited to development is sufficient to induce enduring alterations in startle plasticity and anxiety, while forebrain CRFOE during adulthood results in a different phenotype profile PMID: 24326400

  32. CRH was released during water avoidance stress (WAS) and inhibited NLRP6 expression. WAS induced alterations in the gut microbiota of mice; co-housed nonstressed mice developed enteritis associated with increased CRH and decreased levels of NLRP6. PMID: 23470617
