    Anterior pituitary
  26. 66.Gonadotrophs are cells in the anterior pituitary that secrete what hormone?
    ◦Gonadotrophins: LH and FSH
  27. 67.LH and FSH stimulate what?
    steroid biosynthesis and germ cell maturation in the gonads
  28. 68.What hormone stimulates steroid biosynthesis and germ cell maturation in the gonads?
    ◦Gonadotrophins: LH and FSH
