    OXYTOCIN Contraction of myoepithelial cells of the mammary gland and uterine smooth muscle.
    ADH/VASOPRESSIN Increases water permeability of collecting ducts of kidney and promotes vascular smooth muscle contraction.
    GROWTH HORMONE –RELEASING-HORMONE(GHRH) Stimulates the release of growth hormone.
    GONADOTROPIN-RELEASING-HORMONE(GnRH) Stimulates the release of both FSH&LH.
    THYROTROPIN-RELEASING-HORMONE(TRH) Stimulates the release of thyrotropin and prolactin.
    CORTICOTROPIN-RELEASING-HORMONE(CRH) Stimulates the release of ß lipotropin and corticotrophin.
