QuestionAnswer
Which hormone raises blood sugar
During contraction, the sarcomere gets shorter or remains the same
Effect that increases bone strength
Bone destroying cell
Microscopic anatomy: distance between myosin fibers
Muscle that is striated and voluntary; attaches to and covers bony skeleton
Pathology: autoimmune disorder of pancreatic islet cells
Stimulation of hormone production by other hormones
Mechanosensor
Pathology: hyposecretory disorder of the adrenal cortex
Principle that bones remodel in response to physical environment
Endocrine signaling using gap junctions
Groups that remodel bone
Muscle that is not striated and not voluntary; found in the walls of hollow visceral organs

QuestionAnswer
Chemical required for muscle contraction
Chemical class of GH, Insulin, Glucagon, Insulin-like Growth Factor
Which gland deals with long term stress
Muscle contraction with shortening of the muscle
