Stimulation of hormone production by other hormones
Neurotransmitter that tells muscles when to contract
Which gland secretes TSH, FSH, LH, ACTH, GH, PRL
Thin filaments
Endocrine signaling where the receptor is on the surface of the same producing cell
Microscopic anatomy: length of myosin fibers
Smallest functional contractile unit
Principle that bones remodel in response to physical environment
Pathology caused by too much GH after growth plates fuse
Microscopic anatomy: midline of myosin fiber
During contraction, the A band gets shorter or remains the same
Which gland deals with long term stress
Which hormone lowers blood sugar
Muscle fiber that requires oxygen
Endocrine signaling using gap junctions
Pathology: hyposecretory disorder of the adrenal cortex
Endocrine signaling within the cell
Muscle that is striated and voluntary; attaches to and covers bony skeleton
Muscle that is not striated and not voluntary; found in the walls of hollow visceral organs
Endocrine signaling where the molecule exits into the lumen
Muscle contraction with shortening of the muscle
QuestionAnswer
Which hormone increases blood calcium
Endocrine signaling where the molecule is secreted into the blood stream
Bone forming cell
Pathology: too much cortisone
Effect that increases bone strength
