Forced Order
From Smelley: How do you prevent getting type II diabetes?
Muscle contraction without shortening of muscle
Stimulation of hormone production by neuron
Smallest functional contractile unit
Chemical class of Oxytocin, PTH, ADH
Pathology: hyperthyroidism
Pathology: autoimmune disorder of pancreatic islet cells
Bone that has been remodeled
Microscopic anatomy: length of myosin fibers
During contraction, the H zone and I band gets shorter or remains the same?
Bone formation involving a cartilage intermediary; long bones
Muscle that is striated by not voluntary; found only in the heart
Which hormone lowers blood sugar
Which gland deals with short term stress
Pathology: not enough GH
Microscopic anatomy: distance between actin ends
Muscle contraction with shortening of the muscle
Endocrine signaling that also involves neurons
Which hormone raises blood sugar
Bone forming cell
Chemical class of Melatonin, epinephrine, norepinephrine, thyroxine
Muscle that is not striated and not voluntary; found in the walls of hollow visceral organs
Chemical class of GH, Insulin, Glucagon, Insulin-like Growth Factor
Which gland is connected by neuron to the hypothalmus
Pathology: too much cortisone
Which gland deals with long term stress
Endocrine signaling where the hormone stays in the immediate interstitial fluid
Pathology: hypothyroidism in children
Endocrine signaling where the receptor is on the surface of the same producing cell
Endocrine signaling using gap junctions
Pathology: hypothyroid syndrome in adults
Microscopic anatomy: distance between myosin fibers
Effect that increases bone strength
Bone destroying cell
Groups that remodel bone
Stiffening of the body after death
Microscopic anatomy: midline of myosin fiber
Muscle that is striated and voluntary; attaches to and covers bony skeleton
Endocrine signaling within the cell
Principle that bones remodel in response to physical environment
Stimulation of hormone production by other hormones
Which hormone increases blood calcium
Endocrine signaling where the molecule exits into the lumen
Pathology: resistance to insulin
Which gland secretes TSH, FSH, LH, ACTH, GH, PRL
Thick filaments
Muscle fiber that does not require oxygen
Which hormone increases calcium storage in bones
During contraction, the sarcomere gets shorter or remains the same
Thin filaments
Muscle fiber that requires oxygen
During contraction, the A band gets shorter or remains the same
Cycle that regenerates glucose from lactic acid
Chemical required for muscle contraction
Pathology caused by too much GH after growth plates fuse
Chemical class of Testosterone, Estrogen, Progesterone, Cortisol
Bone that has never been remodeled
Endocrine signaling where the molecule is secreted into the blood stream
Pathology: hyposecretory disorder of the adrenal cortex
Bone formation direct, not involving a cartilage intermediary; flat bones
What happens without the above chemical
Neurotransmitter that tells muscles when to contract
Stimulation of hormone production by imbalance in the blood
Pathology: too much GH while still growing
