Corticotropin-Like Intermediate Lobe Peptide
CLIP (ACTH 18-39)
Corticotropin Like Intermediate Lobe Peptide
A peptide derived from the cleavage of ADRENOCORTICOTROPIC HORMONE, found primarily in the INTERMEDIATE LOBE OF PITUITARY but also in the ARCUATE NUCLEUS of basal HYPOTHALAMUS. Its sequence is identical to the C-terminal 22-amino acids of ACTH or ACTH 18-39.
