 Synonyms & Historicals
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. .

Pituitary Hormone-Releasing Hormone Receptors .
Receptors, Hypothalamic Release-Inhibiting Hormones .
Receptors, Hypothalamic Releasing Hormones .
Receptors, Pituitary Hormone Release Inhibiting Hormones .
Receptors, Pituitary Hormone-Releasing Hormone .
Cell surface receptors that bind the hypothalamic hormones regulating pituitary cell differentiation, proliferation, and hormone synthesis and release, including the pituitary-releasing and release-inhibiting hormones. The pituitary hormone-regulating hormones are also released by cells other than hypothalamic neurons, and their receptors also occur on non-pituitary cells, especially brain neurons, where their role is less well understood. Receptors for dopamine, which is a prolactin release-inhibiting hormone as well as a common neurotransmitter, are not included here. .
