Scope note: NEURONAS especializadas que producen hormonas, como los NEUROPÉPTIDOS o las AMINAS BIOGÉNICAS. Se encuentran generalmente en el SISTEMA NERVIOSO, como en el HIPOTÁLAMO, pero también pueden encontrarse en otros órganos o sistemas. Estas neuronas contienen gránulos neurosecretores densos y PROPROTEÍNAS CONVERTASAS que permiten la rápida liberación de NEUROHORMONAS a la circulación sanguínea tras la estimulación.

Scope note: Specialized NEURONS that produce hormones, such as NEUROPEPTIDES or BIOGENIC AMINES. They generally are in the NERVOUS SYSTEM, such as HYPOTHALAMUS, but can be found in other organs or systems. These neurons contain dense neurosecretory granules and PROPROTEIN CONVERTASES allowing the rapidly release of NEUROHORMONES into the blood circulation upon stimulation.
