Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0032009

NCI Thesaurus Code: C12773  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

Semantic Type: Body Part, Organ, or Organ Component

NCIt Definition: The neural or post-neural lobe of the pituitary gland which stores and releases vasopressin, oxytocin, and neurophysins.

RADLEX Definition: Neural tissue of the pituitary gland, also known as the neurohypophysis. It consists of the distal axons of neurons that produce vasopressin and oxytocin in the supraoptic nucleus and the paraventricular nucleus. These axons travel down through the median eminence, the infundibular stalk, to the posterior lobe of the pituitary gland. [MeSH]

CSP Definition: posterior lobe of the pituitary gland, making up the neural portion, including the infundibulum or neural stalk, continuous with the hypothalamus; serves as a reservoir for neurohormones vasopressin, oxytocin, and neurophysin.

MSH Definition: Neural tissue of the pituitary gland, also known as the neurohypophysis. It consists of the distal AXONS of neurons that produce VASOPRESSIN and OXYTOCIN in the SUPRAOPTIC NUCLEUS and the PARAVENTRICULAR NUCLEUS. These axons travel down through the MEDIAN EMINENCE, the hypothalamic infundibulum of the PITUITARY STALK, to the posterior lobe of the pituitary gland.
