1.

Prolactin

A lactogenic hormone secreted by the adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR). It is a polypeptide of approximately 23 kD. Besides its major action on lactation, in some species prolactin exerts effects on reproduction, maternal behavior, fat metabolism, immunomodulation and osmoregulation. Prolactin receptors are present in the mammary gland, hypothalamus, liver, ovary, testis, and prostate. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
46130
Concept ID:
C0033371
Amino Acid, Peptide, or Protein; Hormone; Pharmacologic Substance
2.

Gonadorelin

A decapeptide that stimulates the synthesis and secretion of both pituitary gonadotropins, LUTEINIZING HORMONE and FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE. GnRH is produced by neurons in the septum PREOPTIC AREA of the HYPOTHALAMUS and released into the pituitary portal blood, leading to stimulation of GONADOTROPHS in the ANTERIOR PITUITARY GLAND. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
6079
Concept ID:
C0023610
Amino Acid, Peptide, or Protein; Hormone; Pharmacologic Substance
3.

Gonadotropin

Heterodimeric glycoprotein Gonadotropin consists of alpha (common)/beta (unique) protein subunits. The alpha subunit is present in other heterodimeric glycoprotein hormones. The beta subunit confers biological specificity and stimulates ovarian synthesis of steroids (progesterone) to maintain pregnancy. [from NCI]

Amino Acid, Peptide, or Protein; Hormone; Pharmacologic Substance
4.

Amino acid

Any organic compounds containing amino (-NH2) and carboxyl (-COOH) groups. In biochemistry, used to refer to the twenty-plus L-alpha-amino acids found in proteins. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:

Pregnancy

The state or condition of having a developing embryo or fetus in the body (uterus), after union of an ovum and spermatozoon, during the period from conception to birth. [from NCI]

Recombinant Gonadorelin

A synthetic luteinizing hormone releasing hormone (LHRH) identical to or similar to the endogenous hormone. Synthesized in and secreted by the hypothalamus, gonadorelin binds to transmembrane LHRH receptors on pituitary gonadotrophic cells, thereby stimulating synthesis and secretion of gonadotropins. Continuous administration of gonadorelin desensitizes the gonadotrophic cells, a negative feedback effect. This agent can be used in treatment of hypothalamic amenorrhea and evaluation of hypothalamic/pituitary function. [from NCI]
