  2. moderate levels of estrogen
    inhibits fsh and lh
  3. High levels of estrogen

  4. phase of secondary oocyte
    metaphase II
  5. Amount of DNA in secondary oocyte
  6. corpus hemmorrhagicum
    blood clot that forms after ovulation
  7. GnRH
    causes the release of FSH and LH
  8. FSH
    stimulates initial development if ivarian follicles, helps in the follicle's secretion of estrotgen and inhibin
  9. LH

  10. progesterone only secreted by the...
    corpus luteum
  11. progesterone
    prepares endometrium for implantation
  12. progesterone
    inhibits gnrh and lh
  13. inhibin

  14. relaxin
    keeps the uterus relaxed, inhibits contraction of smooth muscle
  15. hCG

  31. Androgen Binding protein is secreted by____
    sertoli cells
  32. high concentration of testosterone
    spermatogensis occurs
  33. Inhibin

  34. 5 alpha reductase is located in
    prostate and semincal vesicle
  35. 5 alpha reductase converts __________ to _________
    testosterone; DHT
  36. testosterone
    steroidal hormone that can go through plasma membrane to form a complex with its receptor which is a gene regulator
  37. before birth testosterone...
    stimulates male development of ducts and descent of testis
  38. DHT
    stimulates the development of external ganglia
  39. pill
    synthetic estrogen and progestines thich inhibit fsh and lh so the lh surge can not take place.
  40. ru486

    female with underdeveloped ovaries and mental retardation
  51. blask structure
    primative kidney
  52. SRY
    gene on y chromosome that tells sertoli to produce mullerian inhibiting substance
  53. MIS
    Mullerian inhibiting substance that prevents development of female ducts
  54. Wolffian duct
    forms vas deferens, ejaculatory duct, and seminal vessicle upon stimulation by testosterone
  55. efferent ductules become...
    seminiferous tubules
  56. mullerian duct
