Hypothalamic and Pituitary Hormones by Mind Map: Hypothalamic and Pituitary Hormones

1. Hypothalamic Hormones

1.1. action: on the pituitary

1.1.1. Hypothalamic hormones are releasing hormones (-RH) GRHR Liver, bone, muscle, kidney, among others (Insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1)) TRH Thyroid (Thyroxine, triiodothyronine) CRH Adrenal Cortex GnRH Gonads (Estrogen, progesterone, testosterone) Dopamine Breast

2. Pituitary Hormones

2.1. action: target tissues (thyroid, ovaries, testies, adrenal cortex)

2.1.1. posterior: posterior pituitary + prolactin act directly on target tissues ADH Kidneys Oxytocin Uterus

2.1.2. anterior: stimulate production of hormones by peripheral tissues GH Thyroid (Thyroxine, triiodothyronine) TSH Thyroid (Thyroxine, triiodothyronine) ACTH Adrenal Cortex FSH Gonads (Estrogen, progesterone, testosterone) LH Gonads (Estrogen, progesterone, testosterone) Prolactin Breast
