(BQ) Part 1 book "Endocrine physiology" presents the following contents: General principles of endocrine physiology, the hypothalamus and posterior pituitary gland, anterior pituitary gland, thyroid gland, parathyroid gland and Ca(sup(2 )) and PO (sub(4)) regulation.
Chapter 16 - The endocrine system (part b), this chapter describe structural and functional relationships between the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland; list and describe the chief effects of anterior pituitary hormones; discuss the structure of the posterior pituitary, and describe the effects of the two hormones it releases;...
The peptide hormones of the anterior pituitary are essential for the regulation of growth and
development, reproduction, responses to stress, and intermediary metabolism. Their synthesis and
secretion are controlled by hypothalamic hormones and by hormones from the peripheral endocrine
organs. A large number of disease states as well as a diverse group of drugs also affect their

Gonadotropin releasing hormone receptor (GnRHR) is secreted from hypothalamus and
delivered to the anterior pituitary via the hypophyseal portal circulation where it binds to
the GnRHR on the surface of gonadotropes triggering the synthesis and secretion of the
gonadotropins, follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH). In the
female, LH stimulates the production of androgens by the thecal cells that surround the
growing ovarian follicle.
This textbook is primarily intended to provide undergraduate students of pharmacy with a clear and concise
account of basic endocrine function and dysfunction, at a level sufficient to meet the requirements of first- or
second year qualifying examinations. It is not intended to replace standard texts, but merely to serve as an
accompaniment and convenient revision guide.
Prolactin is a polypeptide hormone that is synthesized in and secreted from the lactotrophs of the anterior pituitary gland. We are now aware that synthesis and secretion of prolactin is not restricted to the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland, but other organs and individual cells can also produce it. This book provides the headlines to follow a course of cumulated knowledge on prolactin research during the last two-three decades and it may also help us understand some of the concerns that we face today....
As the key regulator of reproduction, gonadotropin-releasing hormone
(GnRH) is released by neurons in the hypothalamus, and transported via
the hypothalamo-hypophyseal portal circulation to the anterior pituitary to
trigger gonadotropin release for gonadal steroidogenesis and gametogene-sis.
