Hormones

  1. Pituitary Gland (Anterior)
    • Gland: Anterior Lobe of the Pituitary Gland
    • Hormone: Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
    • Target: Thyroid Gland
    • Hormonal Effect: Secretion of thyroid hormone
    • Control of Secretion: Thyrotropin-Releasing Hormone (TRH)

    • Gland: Anterior Lobe of the Pituitary Gland
    • Hormone: Adrenocorticotropic Hormone (ACTH)
    • Target: Adrenal Cortex (zona fasciculata)
    • Hormonal Effect: Secretion of glucocorticoids (cortisol)
    • Control of Secretion: Corticotropin-Releasing Hormone (CRH)
  2. Pituitary Gland (Posterior)
    • Gland: Anterior Lobe of the Pituitary Gland
    • Hormone: Antidiuretic Hormone (ADH)
    • Target: Kidneys
    • Hormonal Effect: Reabsorption of water
    • Control of Secretion: NO hypothalamic hormone
  3. Thyroid Gland
    • Gland: Follicular Epithelium of the Thyroid Gland
    • Hormone: Thyroxine (T4) Triiodothyronine (T3)
    • Target: Most cells
    • Hormonal Effects: Increases oxygen consumption
    • Control of Secretion: Stimulated by TSH from the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland

    • Gland: C Cells of the Thyroid Gland
    • Hormone: Calcitonin (CT)
    • Target: Bone, kidneys
    • Hormonal Effects: Decreases Ca2+ concentrations in body fluids
    • Control of Secretion: Stimulated by low calcium levels
  4. Parathyroid Gland
    • Gland: Parathyroid Gland (chief cells)
    • Hormone: Parathyroid hormone (PTH)
    • Target: Bone, kidneys
    • Hormonal Effects: Increases Ca2+ concentrations in body fluids
    • Control of secretion: Stimulated by low calcium levels
  5. Adrenal Gland
    • Gland: Adrenal Gland (Zona Glomerulosa)
    • Hormone: Aldosterone (mineralcorticoid)
    • Target: Kidneys
    • Hormonal Effects: Increases renal absorption of Na+ and water
