Hypothalamic hormone

Introduction: Hypothalamic hormone

Description of Hypothalamic hormone

Hypothalamic hormone: hormones isolated from the hypothalamus which exercise control over other organs, primarily the pituitary gland; members include certain pituitary hormone-releasing hormones and pituitary hormone release inhibiting hormones.
Source: CRISP

Hypothalamic hormone: Peptide hormones produced by NEURONS of various regions in the HYPOTHALAMUS. They are released into the pituitary portal circulation to stimulate or inhibit PITUITARY functions. VASOPRESSIN and OXYTOCIN, though produced in the hypothalamus, are not included here for they are transported down the AXONS to the POSTERIOR LOBE OF PITUITARY before being released into the portal circulation.
