Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) is a polypeptide hormone produced by the anterior pituitary gland. It is an essential element of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. Biological stress is responsible to stimulate the release of ACTH from pituitary gland. It plays a key role in the production and release of corticosteroids from adrenal gland.Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submittedÂ manuscriptsÂ and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the acceptedÂ standardsÂ of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
