With the structural characterization of the hypothalamic hormones, luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LH-RH), thyrotrophin-releasing (TRH), melanocyte-stimulating hormone release-inhibiting hormine (MIH), and growth hormone release-inhibiting hormone, (GH-RIH or somatostatin), it has been possible to investigate their enzymic inactivation by peptidases which are present at various sites in the body. Enzymes may play an important part in the control of polypeptide hormone levels and the… CONTINUE READING
