Anterior Pituitary  Growth Hormone (GH)  Targets the liver, muscle, bone (protein, somatotroph) Cartilage, and other tissues anabolic hormone; stimulates somatic growth; moblizes fat and spares glucose.  Anterior Pituitary Thyroid stimulating hormone targets the thyroid gland. (TSH)  stimulates thyroid gland to  (glycoprotein, thyrotroph) release thyroid hormones.  tropic hormone Anterior Pituitary  Adrenocorticotropic hormone targets adrenal cortex;  (ACTH) promotes release of gluco- (polypeptide of 39 amino corticoids and androgens acids, corticotroph)  (mineralcorticoids to a  tropic hormone less extent).  Anterior Pituitary Follicle stimulating hormone targets ovaries and testes; (FSH) in females, stimulates ovarian (glycoproteins, gonadotroph) follicle maturation and estrog- tropic hormone en production; in males,  stimulates sperm production.  Anterior Pituitary Luteinizing hormone  Targets ovaries and testes:  (LH) in females, triggers ovulation (Glycoprotein, gonadotroph) and stimulates ovarian tropic hormone production of estrogen and  progesterone. In males,  promotes testosterone  production. Anterior Pituitary Prolactin targets breast secretory tissue (PRL)  promotes lactation (protein, lactotrophin)  Posterior Pituitary Oxytocin Targets uterus: stimulates  (peptide mostly from neurons uterin contractions; initiated  in paraventricular nucleus of labor; breast: initiates milk
