Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH)
a tropic hormone located in the anterior Pituitary gland that stimulates secretion of adrenal cortex hormones
Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)
a tropic hormone located in the anterior Pituitary gland; in females, it stimulates the development of ovarian follicles and the secretion of estrogen; in men, it stimulates seminiferous tubules of testes to grow and produce sperm

a tropic hormone located in the anterior Pituitary gland; in females, it stimulates maturation of ovarian follicle and ovum, stimulates the secretion of estrogen, triggers ovulation, and stimulates the development of the corpus luteum; in males, it stimulates the interstitial cells of the testes to secrete testosterone
Growth hormone (GH)
hormone located in the anterior Pituitary gland that stimulates growth in all organs; mobilizes food molecules, causing an increase in blood glucose concentration

hormone located in the posterior Pituitary gland stimulates retention of water by kidneys
hormone located in the posterior Pituitary gland that stimulates uterine contraction at the end of pregnancy; stimulates the release of milk into breast ducts
hormones located in the hypothalamus that stimulate the anterior Pituitary to release hormones
