• Decapeptide (10 amino acids).
      • Released from the hypothalamus.
      • Estrogen surge causes its release.
      • Currently thought to cause the release of the both gonadotropins, Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), but there may actually be an LH releasing hormone (LHRH) and an FSH releasing hormone FSHRH.
      • Clinically, much more potent analogs are available. They have substitutions for some of the amino acids.
