Receptors thyrotropin-releasing hormone

receptors, thyrotropin-releasing hormone

cell surface receptors that bind thyrotropin releasing hormone (trh) with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes which influence the behaviour of cells. Activated trh receptors in the anterior pituitary stimulate the release of thyrotropin (thyroid stimulating hormone, tsh). Trh receptors on neurons mediate neurotransmission by trh.
