The flashcards below were created by user sweetlu on FreezingBlue Flashcards. What would you like to do?


  1. TRH
    • - thyrotropin releasing hormone
    • - cause TSH release---> T3 and T4
    • -**can also cause increase in prolactin as well**
    • - paraventricular nucleus
  2. CRH
    • -corticotropin releasing hormone
    • - cause ACTH release--> Cortisol
    • - paraventricular nucleus
  3. GnRH
    • - gonadotropin releasing hormone
    • - cause LH and FSH release---> sex steroids
  4. GHRH (SRH)
    • - growth hormone (somatotropin) releasing hormone
    • - cause GH release---> IGF-1(Somatomedin C)
    • - arcuate nucleus
  5. Somatostatin
    - inhibits GH release
  6. Dopamine
    • - inhibits prolactin release
    • - arcuate nucleus
  7. DHEA
    • - adrenal androgen (steroid)
    • - NOT protein carrier bound
  8. POMC
    • - large precursor of several different hormones
    • - ACTH, B- lipoprotein, MSH(a,b,g), B-endorphin
  9. adenohypophysis
    • - oral ectoderm derived
    • - pars distalis, pars tuberalis, and pars intermedia
    • - GH(somatotropic) and PRL(prolactin)-> acidophilic
    • - FSH, LH, TSH(thyrotropin), ACTH(corticotropin)-> basophilic (glycoproteins)
  10. neurohypophysis
    • - neural ectoderm derived
    • - pars nervosa, infundibulum and median eminence
    • - stores ADH(supraoptic n) and oxytocin(paraventricular n) made mostly in respective nuclei (both nuclei make both though)
    • -
  11. basophils and secretions
    • - thyrotrophs- TSH(thyrotropin)
    • - corticotrophs- ACTH(corticotropin), MSH, LPH, endorphins and enkaphalins==> all from POMC precursor
    • -gonadotrophs- LH and FSH
  12. thyocyanate
    • - Na/I cotransported inhibitor
    • - cabbage and casava
    • - inhibition of I uptake in thyroid cells, can prevent synthesis of new thyroxine
