thyrotropin-releasing hormone-synthesizing neurons in the human hypothalamus are innervated by neuropeptide Y, agouti related protein, and alphamelanocyte-stimulating hormone.
These similar results with the present study suggested that the SS1 gene corresponds to the hypophysiotropic

neurohormone into a neuroprotective drug," Current Pharmaceutical Design, vol.

PACAP and the growth release hormone (GRH) are part of the same super-family of regulatory neuropeptides and both have hypophysiotropic
activity; low height is common in patients with Monosomy 18p and it may be a result of deficiency of the growth hormone secondary to an alteration in a path involving the genes mentioned, where PACAP would be absent because of the deletion (4).
