  12. 1st Hormone receptor Char.
    Very Specific
  13. 2nd Hormone receptor Char.
    Equilibrium system (ie reaction is reversible)
  14. 3rd Hormone receptor Char.
    can be saturated. (due to limited #, an incr in horm will incr reaction until all recepters are in use, that is saturated)
  15. 4th Hormone receptor Char.
    High affinity. even at [low], they will still bind to receptor
  16. 5th Hormone receptor Char.
    # can vary due to dis, physiology, etc
  17. 6th Hormone receptor Char.
    dysfunc of recpt can be caused by many dis lead to horm being unable to recog and bind.
