2. Be able to identify the 4 releasing hormones and the 2 inhibitory hormones directed towards the anterior pituitary. Be able to identify the 2 hormones from the hypothalamus that are released from the posterior pituitary.
Anterior Pituitary(Adenohypohpysis)
1. (Releasing hormone)Thyrotropin-reaches anterior lobe of pituitary and stimulates release of Thyroid stimulating hormone(TSH)/Prolactin(PRL).
2. (Releasing Hormone)Gonadotropin- releases Follicle Stimulating Hormone(FSH)/Luteinizing Hormone(LH).
3. (Releasing Hormone) Growth Hormone-stimulates cells in adenohypophysis to secrete Growth Hormone(GH).
4. (Releasing Hormone)Corticotropin- stimulates cells in the adenohypophysis to release Adrenocorticotropic Hormone(ACTH).

Anterior Pituitary(Adenohypohpysis)
A. (Inhibiting Hormone) Somatostatin-inhibits release of Growth Hormone(GH) and of Thyroid Stimulating Hormone(TSH).
B. (Inhibiting Hormone) Dopamine-inhibits release of Prolactin(PRL).

Posterior Pituitary(Neurohypophysis)
I. Oxytocin(Cuddle Hormone)- uterus, mammary glands-uterine contraction; lactation-supraoptic and paraventricular.
II. Antidiuretic Hormone(Vasopressin)-kidneys or arterioles- stimulates water retention; raises blood pressure by contracting arterioles-supraoptic and paraventricular nuclei.

3).be able to describe the major functions of the hormones above. For the hypothalamic hormones directed against the anterior pituitary (releasing and inhibitory), be able to identity which anterior pituitary hormone is affected by each.
4 Releasing hormones:
* Thyrotropin-releasing hormone - tripeptide (GluHisPro) - reaches anterior lobe of pituitary and stimulates release of
*Thyroid Stimulanting Hormone(TSH )
* stimulates secretion of thyroid hormone
* Prolactin (PRL)
* after birth stimulates mammary glands to synthesize milk,
* enhances secretion of testosterone by testes

* Corticotropin-releasing hormone 41 aa peptide
* Stimulates cells in adenohypophysis to release
