Chemical Pituitary Hormones, Posterior

Name Pituitary Hormones, Posterior
Equivalent Terms Neurohypophyseal Hormones | Neurohypophyseal Peptides | Pituitrin | Posterior Pituitary Hormones
Definition Hormones released from the neurohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, POSTERIOR). They include a number of peptides which are formed in the NEURONS in the HYPOTHALAMUS, bound to NEUROPHYSINS, and stored in the nerve terminals in the posterior pituitary. Upon stimulation, these peptides are released into the hypophysial portal vessel blood.
