  1. source: diverse tissue in body
    target: local cells within the source tissue
    Principal action: Diverse local (paracrine/autocrine) effects such as regulation of inflammation, muscle contraction in blood vessels
    Prostagladins (PG's)
  2. Source: Platelets
    Target: Other platelets; muscles in blood vessel walls
    Principal action; Increases stickiness of platelets; promot blood clotting; cause constriction of blood vessels
    Thromboxanes (TXs)
  3. source: several types of WBC (leukocytes)
    target: local cells of various types
    Principle action: produce local inflammation triggered b allergens, including constriction of airways (as in asthma) and other inflammatory responses
    Leukotrienes
  4. Source: hypothalamus
    target: adenohypophysis
    Principal Action: stimulates secretion (release) of growth hormone
    Growth hormone - releasing hormone (GHRH)
  5. source: hypothalamus

    Principal action: inhibits secretion of growth hormone
    Growth hormone - hihibiting hormone (GHIH) or Somatostatin
  6. source: hypothalamus
    Target: adenohypophysis (corticotrophs)
    Principal action: Stimulates release of adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH)

  8. Source: Hypothalamus
    Target: Adenohypophysis (gonadotrophs)
    Principal Action: Simulates release of gonadotropins (FSH and LH)
    Gonadotropin - releasing hormone GnRH)
  9. Source: Hypothalamus
    Target: Adenohypophysis (Corticotrophs)
