QuestionAnswer
Smallest functional contractile unit
Chemical class of Melatonin, epinephrine, norepinephrine, thyroxine
Which gland secretes TSH, FSH, LH, ACTH, GH, PRL
Muscle fiber that does not require oxygen
Stimulation of hormone production by other hormones
What happens without the above chemical
Bone that has been remodeled
Which gland deals with short term stress
Muscle contraction without shortening of muscle
Effect that increases bone strength
Which hormone lowers blood sugar
Pathology: resistance to insulin
During contraction, the A band gets shorter or remains the same
Endocrine signaling within the cell
Bone formation involving a cartilage intermediary; long bones
Muscle contraction with shortening of the muscle
Endocrine signaling where the receptor is on the surface of the same producing cell
Which hormone raises blood sugar
Muscle that is striated by not voluntary; found only in the heart
Pathology: hypothyroid syndrome in adults
Chemical class of Testosterone, Estrogen, Progesterone, Cortisol
Chemical class of GH, Insulin, Glucagon, Insulin-like Growth Factor
QuestionAnswer
Groups that remodel bone
Pathology: too much GH while still growing
Bone forming cell
Stiffening of the body after death
Pathology: hyposecretory disorder of the adrenal cortex
Which gland deals with long term stress
Endocrine signaling where the molecule exits into the lumen
Pathology: hypothyroidism in children
Bone that has never been remodeled
Principle that bones remodel in response to physical environment
Chemical class of Oxytocin, PTH, ADH
Stimulation of hormone production by neuron
Endocrine signaling that also involves neurons

Thick filaments
Muscle that is not striated and not voluntary; found in the walls of hollow visceral organs
Muscle fiber that requires oxygen
Microscopic anatomy: midline of myosin fiber
Endocrine signaling where the hormone stays in the immediate interstitial fluid
Chemical required for muscle contraction
Pathology caused by too much GH after growth plates fuse
QuestionAnswer
Bone formation direct, not involving a cartilage intermediary; flat bones
Which hormone increases calcium storage in bones

Muscle that is striated and voluntary; attaches to and covers bony skeleton
Pathology: too much cortisone
Endocrine signaling where the molecule is secreted into the blood stream
Neurotransmitter that tells muscles when to contract
Which hormone increases blood calcium
From Smelley: How do you prevent getting type II diabetes?

Pathology: not enough GH
Bone destroying cell
