The hypothalamus releases a hormone called thyrotropin releasing hormone (TRH), which sends a signal to the pituitary to release thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH).
Two nuclear intron regions (7th intron of the beta fibrinogen gene and thyrotropin) also were included, but showed limited genetic variation and no fixed differences between the 2 taxa.
The TSH, aka Thyroid Stimulating Hormone, or thyrotropin for short.
The hypothalamus secretes thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH), triggering the pituitary to make thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH).
The hypothalamus secretes thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH), which tells the pituitary to make thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH).
Changes in serum thyroxine, triiodothyronine, and thyrotropin induced by lithium in normal subjects and in rats (The James A. Bush memorial research awards) by Connie Child
Nor do the authors have good words for dairy which they write treats unwitting consumers to prolactin, somatostatin, melatonin, oxytocin, growth hormone, luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone, thyrotropin-releasing hormone, thyroid-stimulating hormone and fourteen other unwanted hormones in addition to fat, calories, cholesterol and antibiotics.
A review of the literature revealed a similar effect in different target cells in response to a broad array of stimuli, including parasympathetic secretory cells responding to acetylcholine and thyroid gland cells to their cognate hormones, thyrotropin (TSH).
He helped Dr. Guillemin to his first success, the identification of TRF, or thyrotropin releasing factor.
Serum levels of electrolytes, bilirubin, calcium, thyrotropin, creatine kinase, C-reactive protein, and uric acid; the erythrocyte sedimentation rate; and tests of renal and liver function were normal.
