QuestionAnswer
this class of hormones does not readily need transport proteins when released in the blood
Tumor of chromaffin cells resulting in the overproduction of catecholamines.
chief cells of the pineal gland
thryrotropic hormone (TSH) is released by acidophils or basophils of the anterior pituitary?
True or False: The release of catecholamines and peptide hormones occurs by merocrine secretion, while thyroxine and steroid hormones diffuse across the membrane.
this hormone increases blood calcium by promoting release from bones
IGF-1 is produced by _____.
embryologic origin of the anterior lobe of the pituitary?
luteinizing hormone (LH) is released by acidophils or basophils of the anterior pituitary?
gonadal and adrenocortical hormones are examples of what class of hormone?
this molecule inhibits the release of prolactin
calcified concretions in the pineal gland
thin remnant of the posterior wall of the pouch of the anterior pituitary lobe that abuts the pas distalis
these cells are responsible for the production of T3 and T4
synthesized from tyrosine and packaged into secretory vesicles
these type of hormones regulate activity of hormones in other endocrine glands
an indolamine whose synthesis and release via diffusion through the membrane is enhanced during the dark cycle.
what hormone stimulates the release of growth hormone?
which pituitary lobe is known as the neurohypohysis?
which pituitary lobe is known as the adrenohypohysis?
True or False: The pineal gland arises from an outpocketing of the diencephalon
gel-like mass within the thyroid follicle
_____ _____ _____is a disorder related to a abnormal regulation of day/night cycles.
thick middle zone of the adrenal cortex that releases gluococorticoids
follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) is is released by acidophils or basophils of the anterior pituitary?
QuestionAnswer
develops from the thickened lateral walls of the pouch of the anterior pituitary and forms a collar or sheath around the infundibulum
the portion of the adrenal gland that produces catecholamines
decreases urine volume by increasing reabsorption of water by collecting ducts, decreases perspiration in response to dehydration, and increases blood pressure by stimulating contr
the inner zone of the adrenal cortex that is involved in producing the sex hormones or androgens

adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) is released by acidophils or basophils of the anterior pituitary?
a pea sized compound endocrine gland that is also known as the hypohysis
true or false: ADH acts to increase permeability of the distal portions of the nephron by acting on aquaporins
this class of hormones requires a transport protein such as androgen binding protein to reach target cells
stimulates myoepithelial cells of the mammary gland andstimulates contraction of smooth muscle in the pregnant uterus
ADH is secreted by the ______ nuclei.
hormonal control classified as hormones secreted and acts on same cell
what embryonic structure descends in the neck and divides into left and right thyroid lobes.
stimulates follicular development and spermatogenesis
hormonal control classified as hormones secreted from one cell to act on adjacent cells.
portion of the posterior pituitary that contains neurosecretory axons and their endings
membrane bound neurosecretory granules unite to form _____ ____ that contain oxytocin and vasopressin.
this class of hormones is synthesized from cholesterol by enzymes present in mitochondria and endoplasmic reticulum
regulates maturation of ovarian follicle, ovulation, and corpus luteum formation
comprises the bulk of the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland. arises from the thickened anterior wall of the pouch
endocrine gland that regulates daily body rhythm
this hormone decreases blood calcium by stimulating absorption of calcium by the bones
norepinephrine and epinephrine are examples of what class of hormone?
hormone promotes mammary growth and initiates milk formation
QuestionAnswer
released upon the endocytosis and lysosomal degradation of iodothyroglobulin
cells of the adrenal medulla that secrete epinephrine and norepinephrine
embryologic origin of the posterior lobe of the pituitary?
somatostatin _____ the release of growth hormone.
stimulates thyroid growth and secretion of thyroxines
neurotransmitters synthesized from tryptophan
_____ is an iodinated tyrosine derivative embedded within thyroglobulin, which is released during the endocytosis and lysosomal degradation. _______ then diffuses out of the cell.
these cells secrete PTH
narrow outer zone of the adrenal cortex that secretes mineralcortacoids
prolactin is released by acidophils or basophils of the anterior pituitary?
how many hormones are secreted by the anterior pituitary?
these cells secrete calcitonin
