Chemical Gonadotropins, Pituitary

Name Gonadotropins, Pituitary
Equivalent Term Pituitary Gonadotropins
Definition Hormones secreted by the adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR) that stimulate gonadal functions in both males and females. They include FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE that stimulates germ cell maturation (OOGENESIS; SPERMATOGENESIS), and LUTEINIZING HORMONE that stimulates the production of sex steroids (ESTROGENS; PROGESTERONE; ANDROGENS).
Curation Status No gene interactions have been curated for this chemical yet.
