The regulated release of adiponectin, a protein hormone, by adipose tissue. The process whereby a signal is secreted or discharged into the extracellular medium from a cellular source. The regulated release of progesterone, a steroid hormone, by the corpus luteum of the ovary and by the placenta. The directed movement of hormones into, out of, within or between cells by means of some external agent such as a transporter or pore. The regulated release of hormones, substances with a specific regulatory effect on a particular organ or group of cells. A multicellular organismal process carried out by any of the organs or tissues in an organ system. An organ system is a regularly interacting or interdependent group of organs or tissues that work together to carry out a biological objective. The process by which a hormone is secreted into the circulatory system. The regulated release of adrenocorticotropin hormone, also known as corticotropin, by a cell or group of cells. Adrenocorticotropin hormone is a polypeptide hormone synthesized and secreted from corticotropes in the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland in response to corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) released by the hypothalamus. The regulated release of a gonadotropin, any hormone that stimulates the gonads, especially follicle-stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone. The regulated release of an inhibin, either of two glycoproteins (designated A and B), secreted by the gonads and present in seminal plasma and follicular fluid, that inhibit pituitary production of follicle-stimulating hormone. The regulated release of juvenile hormones, the three sesquiterpenoid derivatives that function to maintain the larval state of insects at molting and that may be required for other processes, e.g. oogenesis. The regulated release of ecdysteroids, a group of polyhydroxylated ketosteroids which initiate post-embryonic development. The process that involves the secretion of or response to endocrine hormones. An endocrine hormone is a hormone released into the circulatory system. The controlled release of a substance by a cell. The regulated release of cortisol, a steroid hormone that in humans is the major circulating hormone of the cortex, or outer layer, of the adrenal gland.
