 Synonyms & Historicals
Pituitary Hormones, Posterior .
Neurohypophyseal Peptides .
Posterior Pituitary Hormones .
Pituitrin .
Neurohypophyseal Hormones .
Hormones released from the neurohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, POSTERIOR). They include a number of peptides which are formed in the NEURONS in the HYPOTHALAMUS, bound to NEUROPHYSINS, and stored in the nerve terminals in the posterior pituitary. Upon stimulation, these peptides are released into the hypophysial portal vessel blood. .
Pituitary Hormones .
Hormones, Pituitary .
Hormones secreted by the PITUITARY GLAND including those from the anterior lobe (adenohypophysis), the posterior lobe (neurohypophysis), and the ill-defined intermediate lobe. Structurally, they include small peptides, proteins, and glycoproteins. They are under the regulation of neural signals (NEUROTRANSMITTERS) or neuroendocrine signals (HYPOTHALAMIC HORMONES) from the hypothalamus as well as feedback from their targets such as ADRENAL CORTEX HORMONES; ANDROGENS; ESTROGENS. .
Pituitary Hormones, Anterior .
Anterior Pituitary Hormones .
Hormones, Adenohypophyseal .
Hormones, Anterior Pituitary .
Adenohypophyseal Hormones .
Hormones secreted by the adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR). Structurally, they include polypeptide, protein, and glycoprotein molecules. .
Pituitary Hormone-Releasing Hormones .
Hormones, Pituitary Hormone Releasing .
Hypophysiotropic Hormones .
Hypothalamic Hypophysiotropic Hormone .
Hypothalamic Releasing Factor .
Hypothalamic Releasing Hormone .
Hypothalamic Releasing Hormones .
Hormone, Hypothalamic Hypophysiotropic .
Hormones, Hypophysiotropic .
Hypophysiotropic Hormone, Hypothalamic .
Pituitary Hormone Releasing Hormones .
Releasing Hormone, Hypothalamic .
Peptides, natural or synthetic, that stimulate the release of PITUITARY HORMONES. They were first isolated from the extracts of the HYPOTHALAMUS; MEDIAN EMINENCE; PITUITARY STALK; and NEUROHYPOPHYSIS. In addition, some hypophysiotropic hormones control pituitary cell differentiation, cell proliferation, and hormone synthesis. Some can act on more than one pituitary hormone. .
Receptors, Pituitary Hormone .
Receptors, Pituitary Hormones .
Pituitary Hormones Receptors .
Pituitary Hormone Receptors .
Cell surface proteins that bind pituitary hormones with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes influencing the behavior of cells. Since many pituitary hormones are also released by neurons as neurotransmitters, these receptors are also found in the nervous system. .
