  1. consist of a chemical secreted by cells into extracellular fluid to affect the nearby but different types of cells
  2. a chemical secreted by cells into the interstitial fluid elicits effects from the same cell or cell type
  3. when cells sense a rise in particular hormones in the body, certain target cells with produce more receptors for that hormone. This process is known as
    UP- Regulation
  4. prolonged exposure of a hormone on a target cell can cause the target cell to decrease the number of receptors for that hormone. This process is known as
    Down Regulation
  5. what is special about thyroid hormones
    Thy are amino-acid based but yet hydrophobic unlike other amino acid-based hormones

  8. these enzymes catalyze the transfer of phosphate groups from ATP to other molecules, this process in known as phosphorylation. Phosphorylation also changes the activity or shape of a specific protein
    Protein Kinases
  9. when other hormones act on the same target cell to exert the same affect. they have a more pronounced affect when acting together than when acting alone

    • Synergism with the sympathetic nervous system
  25. what does the parathyroid hormone do
    • increase release of calcium ions from bone by stimulating osteoclasts
    • Increase absorption of dietary calcium ion by the small intestine
    • Increase the reabsorption of calcium from the fluid in the kidneys

  27. what cells make t3 and t4
    Follicle Cells
  28. what cells does calcitonin target
  29. what cells do parathyroid hormone target
    Bone Kidneys Intestines
  30. what two types of hormones do the adrenal glands produce
    Steroid Hormones and Catecholamines
  31. Chromaffin cells, which make up the adrenal Medulla secrete their products directly into the
  32. The Adrenal Medulla and Chromaffic cells produce
    • Catecholamines
    • Epinephrin and Norepinephrine
  33. effects of Catecholamines
    • Increase heart rate and force of contraction
    • dialate the bronchioles
    • Constrict the blood vessels supplying skin and digestive organs while dialating blood vessels supplying skeletal muscles
    • Dialating Pupils and Decreasing digestive and urinary function
  34. what are the 3 adrenal cortical hormones
    • Aldosterone (mineralcorticoid)
    • Cortisol (glucocorticoid)
    • androgen (androgenic steroid)
  35. what does aldosterone do
    • increases na retention and water retention
    • increases k loss
    • increases hydrogen loss
    • regulates blood pressure
  36. what does cortisol do
    • Increases gluconeogenesis in liver
    • Increases protein breakdown in muscles
    • Increases lipolysis in adipose tissue
    • Inhibits inflamatory response
  37. what are the 3 cell types of the pancreatic Islets
    alpha beta and delta cells
  38. what do alpha cells produce
  39. what do beta cells produce
  40. what do delta cell produce
  41. what does glucagon do
    • break down glycogen into glucose (glycogenolysis)
    • forms new glucose by gluconeogenesis in the liver
    • protein breakdown in muscle tissue to release amino acids
    • release of fats from adipose tissue for gluconeogenesis
    • Formation of ketone bodies in the liver
  42. when too many ketone bodie accumulate in the blood and lower the ph this is known as
  43. how is glucagon secretion stimulated
    A decrease in blood glucose concentration or the intake of proteins
  44. what does insulin do
    • Stimulates glucose uptake by most target cells
    • uptake of lipids, amino acids, and glucose
    • Synthesis of glycogen in the liver
    • Synthesis of fat from extra carbs and lipids
    • Promotion of satiety
  45. the pancreas secretes what two hormones
    Glucagon and insulin
  46. what does the pineal gland secrete

  49. what two hormones does the Thymus secrete
    • Thymosin¬†
    • Thymopoietin and targets T lymphocytes

  57. what stimulates testosterone production
    LH Luteinizing Hormone
  58. why is erythropoietin secreted
    When there is a decreased level of oxygen in the blood
  59. what does erythropoietin do
    acts on red bone marrow to help the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood
  60. what does Renin do
    helps regulate blood pressure
  61. these hormones act without entering the blood
    local Hormones
  62. These hormones travel through blood vessels before they reach their target
    circulating hormones
  63. lipid soluble hormone have the ability
    to go through the cell membrane and bind withing the cell
  64. the major link between nervous and endocrine system
