It don't secrete oxytocin, vesopressin and many more.


Anterior lobe of pituitary gland is also called master gland. Because it, in adition to produce primary hormones also secrete tropic hormones.

Hormones secreted by Anterior Pituitary

  • Somatotrophin Hormone(STH).
  • Thyroid Stimulating Hormone(TSH).

  • Adrenocorticotrophic Hormone(ACTH).

  • Gonadotrophic Hormones.

Thus all the hormones except the one mentioned above are not secreted by anterior pituitary.
