QuestionAnswer
During contraction, the sarcomere gets shorter or remains the same
Endocrine signaling where the hormone stays in the immediate interstitial fluid
Which gland secretes TSH, FSH, LH, ACTH, GH, PRL
Muscle that is striated and voluntary; attaches to and covers bony skeleton
Which gland deals with short term stress
Groups that remodel bone

Muscle contraction with shortening of the muscle
Chemical class of GH, Insulin, Glucagon, Insulin-like Growth Factor
Which hormone raises blood sugar
Principle that bones remodel in response to physical environment
