 Synonyms & Historicals
Neuroendocrine Tumors .
Neuroendocrine Tumor .
Tumor, Neuroendocrine .
Tumors, Neuroendocrine .
Tumors whose cells possess secretory granules and originate from the neuroectoderm, i.e., the cells of the ectoblast or epiblast that program the neuroendocrine system. Common properties across most neuroendocrine tumors include ectopic hormone production (often via APUD CELLS), the presence of tumor-associated antigens, and isozyme composition. .
Neuroendocrine Cells .
Endocrine Neurons .
Cell, Neuroendocrine .
Cells, Neuroendocrine .
Endocrine Neuron .
Neuroendocrine Cell .
Neuron, Endocrine .
Neurons, Endocrine .
Specialized NEURONS that produce hormones, such as NEUROPEPTIDES or BIOGENIC AMINES. They generally are in the NERVOUS SYSTEM, such as HYPOTHALAMUS, but can be found in other organs or systems. These neurons contain dense neurosecretory granules and PROPROTEIN CONVERTASES allowing the rapidly release of NEUROHORMONES into the blood circulation upon stimulation. .
Neuroendocrinology .
The study of the anatomical and functional relationships between the nervous system and the endocrine system. .
Neurosecretory Systems .
Neuroendocrine Systems .
Neurosecretory System .
System, Neuroendocrine .
System, Neurosecretory .
Systems, Neuroendocrine .
Systems, Neurosecretory .
Neuroendocrine System .
A system of NEURONS that has the specialized function to produce and secrete HORMONES, and that constitutes, in whole or in part, an ENDOCRINE SYSTEM or organ. .
