6 anterior pituitary hormones
thyrotropin, corticotropin, gonadotropin, growth-hormone
4 hypothalamic releasing hormones that regulates the anterior pituitary
thyrotropin-releasing hormone TRH

peptides and glycoproteins are created from and secreted by
amino acids, adrenal acids, thyroid gland
monoamines (biogenic amines) are derived from and secreted by
first several amino acids is a signal peptide that guides it into cisterna of rough endoplasmic reticulum
