How to Play
Chemical required for muscle contraction
Which gland deals with long term stress
Muscle that is not striated and not voluntary; found in the walls of hollow visceral organs
Bone forming cell
Pathology caused by too much GH after growth plates fuse
Stiffening of the body after death
Pathology: hyperthyroidism
Microscopic anatomy: distance between actin ends
Muscle that is striated by not voluntary; found only in the heart
Pathology: autoimmune disorder of pancreatic islet cells
Endocrine signaling that also involves neurons
Bone formation involving a cartilage intermediary; long bones
Which hormone lowers blood sugar
Bone formation direct, not involving a cartilage intermediary; flat bones
Endocrine signaling where the molecule exits into the lumen
Muscle that is striated and voluntary; attaches to and covers bony skeleton
Pathology: hypothyroid syndrome in adults
Effect that increases bone strength
Pathology: hypothyroidism in children
Which hormone increases blood calcium
Chemical class of Testosterone, Estrogen, Progesterone, Cortisol
Pathology: hyposecretory disorder of the adrenal cortex
Smallest functional contractile unit
Bone that has been remodeled
Chemical class of GH, Insulin, Glucagon, Insulin-like Growth Factor
