Corticosterone

Corticosterone is a glucocorticoid hormone secreted from the cortex of adrenal gland. Corticosterone is derived from cholesterol through a series of enzymatically mediated steps and also serving as a precursor of aldosterone. It is a primary glucocorticoid in mice and rats and other animals (such as rabbits, birds, amphibians, and reptilians) in which the 17-hydroxylase is supposed not to exist in adrenal gland. Corticosterone is produced under the control of ACTH and the production has a circadian rhythm with peak levels in the latter portion of the day in nocturnal animals like rats and is believed to play a decisive role in sleep-wake cycles. Corticosterone can be used as a non-invasive biomarker of stress study through the collection of urine and feces to avoid corticosterone increase of blood levels which is caused by normal invasive methods. Corticosterone is also being studied in different fields such as impairment of long-term memory retrieval, chronic corticosterone elevation due to dietary restrictions and response to burn injuries etc.
