Annotationneurotransmitter proteins secreted by the hypothalamus; / biosyn / physiol permitted
Scope NoteA group of small, soluble proteins secreted by the hypothalamus. They serve as binding proteins for oxytocin and vasopressin during their transport to the posterior pituitary. They are secreted with the hormones but have no known functions other than serving as a carrier.
