Corticotropin-releasing hormone is a potent stimulator ofsynthesis and secretion of preopiomelanocortin-derived peptides.Although CRH concentrations in the human peripheral circulation arenormally low, they increase throughout pregnancy and fall rapidlyafter parturition. Maternal plasma CRH probably originates from theplacenta. Human plasma contains a CRH-binding protein whichinactivates CRH and which may prevent inappropriatepituitary-adrenal stimulation in pregnancy.
