Corticotropin releasing hormone (CRH), and the urocortins (UCN) play key roles in mammalian pathophysiology. Their actions are mediated through two types of G-protein coupled CRH receptors, (R1 and R2) which exhibit distinct pharmacological characteristics and determine specificity of CRH and UCN actions. Several CRH-R1 mRNA splice variants have been identified in native tissues, encoding receptor isoforms with various aminoacid inserts or deletions, termed R1β, R1c, R1d ...
