The hypothalamus secretes a hormone called GnRH that makes the anterior pituitary gland release FSH, referred to as (A)__________ hormone, and LH, or luteinizing hormone. As the levels of these two hormones increase, the oocyte and layer of cells that nourish it grow. As this happens, fluids containing a certain hormone increase in the follicle, and blood levels of the same hormone increase. That hormone is called (B)__________.

What would the biological effect of severing the portal blood vessels in the stalk of a pituitary gland? Would the release of hormones by the posterior pituitary gland be affected by severing the portal blood vessels?
The pancreas is part of the digestive system because the pancreas secretes enzymes that digest foods. Because it produces hormones such as insulin and glucagon, the pancreas is also part of the endocrine system. List two other
What stimulating factor(s) and receptor(s) could be inhibited that would decrease the release of estrogen? I talked about how you could inhibit GnRH, LH and FSH. But I can't think of any receptors or any other stimulating factors.
