QuestionAnswer
Muscle fiber that does not require oxygen
Effect that increases bone strength
Thin filaments
Muscle fiber that requires oxygen
Pathology: too much GH while still growing
Muscle contraction with shortening of the muscle
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
Bone forming cell
Endocrine signaling where the receptor is on the surface of the same producing cell
Pathology: autoimmune disorder of pancreatic islet cells
Bone that has never been remodeled
Pathology: resistance to insulin
Which hormone increases calcium storage in bones
Bone that has been remodeled
Which hormone raises blood sugar
During contraction, the H zone and I band gets shorter or remains the same?
Pathology: hyperthyroidism
Principle that bones remodel in response to physical environment
Pathology: too much cortisone
Microscopic anatomy: midline of myosin fiber
Pathology caused by too much GH after growth plates fuse
QuestionAnswer
Muscle contraction without shortening of muscle
Endocrine signaling where the molecule is secreted into the blood stream
Chemical required for muscle contraction
Chemical class of Testosterone, Estrogen, Progesterone, Cortisol
Groups that remodel bone
Stimulation of hormone production by imbalance in the blood
Thick filaments
Microscopic anatomy: distance between myosin fibers
Bone formation direct, not involving a cartilage intermediary; flat bones

QuestionAnswer
Chemical class of Oxytocin, PTH, ADH
Stimulation of hormone production by other hormones
Neurotransmitter that tells muscles when to contract
Pathology: hyposecretory disorder of the adrenal cortex
Chemical class of GH, Insulin, Glucagon, Insulin-like Growth Factor
