Chemical Pituitary Hormone-Releasing Hormones

Name Pituitary Hormone-Releasing Hormones
Equivalent Terms Hormone, Hypothalamic Hypophysiotropic | Hormones, Hypophysiotropic | Hormones, Pituitary Hormone Releasing | Hypophysiotropic Hormone, Hypothalamic | Hypophysiotropic Hormones | Hypothalamic Hypophysiotropic Hormone | Hypothalamic Releasing Factor | Hypothalamic Releasing Hormone | Hypothalamic Releasing Hormones | Pituitary Hormone Releasing Hormones | Releasing Hormone, Hypothalamic
Definition 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.
