The secretion or inhibition of these are under the control of releasing or inhibiting hormones made in the hypothalamus and carried to the anterior pit. via the hypophyseal portal system. This portal system has nothing to do with the posterior pit 2. posterior pit stores two hormones in axons of neurons located in the hypothalamus where the two hormones are made and then sent down the axons to be stored in Herring bodies. 3. All the hormones of the pit. are peptides - therefore soluble in blood and also capable of being stored as secretory granules within the cells of the ant. pit or in axons in the post. pit 4. Thyroid - unique in that actual hormones are made extracellularly in the follicle. All aspects of the synthesis is under the stimulation of TSH; the follicular cells make thyroglobulin and secrete it into the follicle; they make the Na/I pump to extract iodine from capillaries; thyoglobulin is...
