Endocrine signaling where the hormone stays in the immediate interstitial fluid
Endocrine signaling where the molecule is secreted into the blood stream
Muscle that is striated and voluntary; attaches to and covers bony skeleton
Pathology: hyposecretory disorder of the adrenal cortex
During contraction, the A band gets shorter or remains the same
Which gland secretes TSH, FSH, LH, ACTH, GH, PRL
Groups that remodel bone
Which gland is connected by neuron to the hypothalmus
Muscle contraction without shortening of muscle
Bone that has never been remodeled
Pathology: too much cortisone
Effect that increases bone strength
Pathology: resistance to insulin
