which hormones are produced by the anterior pituitary? Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), Luteinizing hormone (LH), Human growth hormone (HGH), Prolactin (PRL)
what is the function of the Thyroid stimulating hormone TSH? TSH is a tropic hormone responsible for the stimulation of the thyroid gland.
what is the function of the Adrenocorticotropic hormone ACTH? ACTH stimulates the adrenal cortex, the outer part of the adrenal gland, to produce its hormones.
what is the function of the Follicle stimulating hormone FSH? FSH stimulates the follicle cells of the gonads to produce gametes—ova in females and sperm in males.
what is the function of the Luteinizing hormone LH? LH stimulates the gonads to produce the sex hormones—estrogens in females and testosterone in males.
what is the function of human growth hormone HGH? HGH affects many target cells throughout the body by stimulating their growth, repair, and reproduction.
