Chemical Hypothalamic Hormones

Name Hypothalamic Hormones
Equivalent Terms Hormones, Hypothalamic | Hormones, Hypothalamic Pituitary-Regulating | Hypothalamic Pituitary Regulating Hormones | Hypothalamic Pituitary-Regulating Hormones | Hypothalamic Pituitary Regulating Peptides | Hypothalamic Pituitary-Regulating Peptides | Peptides, Hypothalamic Pituitary-Regulating | Pituitary-Regulating Hormones, Hypothalamic | Pituitary-Regulating Peptides, Hypothalamic
Definition 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.
