We found that gene expression of urocortin 2 (Ucn2) is not only the most abundant of CRH family members in adrenal medulla but also that stress triggers an enormous induction of Ucn2 mRNA levels. The stress-triggered release of CRH and rise of glucocorticoids is important for Ucn2 gene expression. Elevated Ucn2 can modulate adrenomedullary function in autocrine/paracrine fashion, with possible endocrine effect.
