How to Play
Stimulation of hormone production by neuron
From Smelley: How do you prevent getting type II diabetes?
Bone destroying cell
Smallest functional contractile unit
Muscle fiber that requires oxygen
Endocrine signaling using gap junctions
Stimulation of hormone production by other hormones
Endocrine signaling where the molecule exits into the lumen
Endocrine signaling where the receptor is on the surface of the same producing cell
Muscle fiber that does not require oxygen
Bone formation involving a cartilage intermediary; long bones
Pathology: hyperthyroidism
Pathology: autoimmune disorder of pancreatic islet cells
Pathology: not enough GH
Muscle that is not striated and not voluntary; found in the walls of hollow visceral organs
Chemical class of Melatonin, epinephrine, norepinephrine, thyroxine
Endocrine signaling within the cell
Microscopic anatomy: length of myosin fibers
Stiffening of the body after death
Pathology: hypothyroid syndrome in adults
Which gland deals with long term stress
Pathology: hypothyroidism in children
Effect that increases bone strength
Which gland deals with short term stress
Which gland secretes TSH, FSH, LH, ACTH, GH, PRL
Pathology caused by too much GH after growth plates fuse
Microscopic anatomy: midline of myosin fiber
Muscle contraction with shortening of the muscle
Microscopic anatomy: distance between actin ends
Pathology: too much GH while still growing
During contraction, the H zone and I band gets shorter or remains the same?
Groups that remodel bone
Microscopic anatomy: distance between myosin fibers
Chemical class of GH, Insulin, Glucagon, Insulin-like Growth Factor
Bone that has been remodeled
Thick filaments
Which hormone increases blood calcium
Chemical class of Testosterone, Estrogen, Progesterone, Cortisol
Bone formation direct, not involving a cartilage intermediary; flat bones
Endocrine signaling that also involves neurons
Muscle that is striated and voluntary; attaches to and covers bony skeleton
Bone forming cell
Chemical required for muscle contraction
Pathology: resistance to insulin
Principle that bones remodel in response to physical environment
Bone that has never been remodeled
During contraction, the sarcomere gets shorter or remains the same
Which hormone raises blood sugar
