  • GnRH- Gonadotropin releasing hormine=stimulates release of LH and FSH
  • GHRH- Growth hormone releasing hormone=stimulates release of growth hormone (GH)
  • SST- Somatostatin=inhibits release of growth hormone
  • TRH- Thyrotropin, TSH releasing hormone=increases release of thyroid stimulating hormone
  • CRH- Corticotropin releasing hormone=increases release of corticotropin
  • Dopamine- Amine not a peptide hormone=decreases prolactin release
