QuestionAnswer
Endocrine signaling where the hormone stays in the immediate interstitial fluid
Stimulation of hormone production by neuron
Muscle that is striated and voluntary; attaches to and covers bony skeleton
Endocrine signaling that also involves neurons
Which gland deals with long term stress
Groups that remodel bone
Chemical class of Testosterone, Estrogen, Progesterone, Cortisol
Pathology: too much GH while still growing
Which hormone raises blood sugar
Stimulation of hormone production by imbalance in the blood
Stimulation of hormone production by other hormones
Muscle fiber that requires oxygen
Pathology caused by too much GH after growth plates fuse
Microscopic anatomy: distance between actin ends
Microscopic anatomy: distance between myosin fibers
Smallest functional contractile unit
Cycle that regenerates glucose from lactic acid
Bone that has been remodeled
Pathology: autoimmune disorder of pancreatic islet cells
Endocrine signaling where the receptor is on the surface of the same producing cell
Endocrine signaling within the cell
Which hormone increases blood calcium
QuestionAnswer
Endocrine signaling where the molecule is secreted into the blood stream
Stiffening of the body after death
During contraction, the sarcomere gets shorter or remains the same
Effect that increases bone strength
