Hypothalamic Pituitary Regulating Peptides .
Peptides, Hypothalamic Pituitary-Regulating .
Pituitary-Regulating Hormones, Hypothalamic .
Pituitary-Regulating Peptides, Hypothalamic .
Peptide hormones produced by NEURONS of various regions in the HYPOTHALAMUS. They are released into the pituitary portal circulation to stimulate or inhibit PITUITARY GLAND functions. VASOPRESSIN and OXYTOCIN, though produced in the hypothalamus, are not included here for they are transported down the AXONS to the POSTERIOR LOBE OF PITUITARY before being released into the portal circulation. .

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. .
