• The posterior pituitary is neural tissue and consists only of the distal axons of the hypothalamic magnocellular neurons that make up the neurohypophysis. • The control of hormone synthesis is at the level of transcription. Stimuli for secretion of vasopressin or oxytocin also stimulate transcription and increase the messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) content in the magnocellular neurons. • The physiologic regulation of vasopressin synthesis and secretion involves two systems: osmotic and… Expand
