Review: Anterior Pituitary Hormones Anterior Pituitary Hormones Thyroid- stimulating hormone (TSH) Adrenocortico- tropic hormone (ACTH) Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) Luteinizing hormone (LH) Prolactin (PRL) Growth hormone (GH) Melanocyte- stimulating hormone (MSH) Thyroid gland Suprarenal (adrenal) gland Ovary Testis Mammary gland Musculo- skeletal system Melanocyte Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) targets the thyroid gland. It results in the production of thyroid hormones (T 3 , T 4 ). Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) targets the suprarenal cortex. It stimulates glucocorticoid secretion. Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) targets follicular cells in the ovaries of females, and nurse cells in the testes of males. FSH causes follicle development and estrogen secretion in females, and sperm maturation in males. Luteinizing hormone (LH) targets follicular cells in the ovaries of females and interstitial cells in the testes of males. In females, LH causes ovulation, corpus luteum formation, and progesterone secretion. Prolactin (PRL) targets the female mammary glands and causes the production of milk. Growth hormone (GH) targets all cells in the body. It causes growth, protein synthesis, lipid mobilization and catabolism. Melanocyte- stimulating hormone (MSH) targets meanocytes. It results in increased melanin production in the epidermis. Gonadotropins (GONAD NOURISHERS):

Thyroid Follicles and Thyroid Hormones - Thyroid follicles are spherical groups of cells - They are lined with simple cuboidal epithelium composed of T thyrocytes ( follicular cells ) T thyrocytes secrete thyroglobulin (a protein) into the follicle T thyrocytes also transport iodine into the follicle Two thyroid hormones are created by attaching iodine to the tyrosine of the thyroglobulin

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
