QuestionAnswer
which pituitary lobe is known as the adrenohypohysis?
_____ _____ _____is a disorder related to a abnormal regulation of day/night cycles.
which pituitary lobe is known as the neurohypohysis?
how many hormones are secreted by the anterior pituitary?
an indolamine whose synthesis and release via diffusion through the membrane is enhanced during the dark cycle.
this class of hormones is translated by ribosomes at the rough endoplasmic reticulum, packaged in the Golgi apparatus, and transported to the cell surface via secretory vesicles
gonadal and adrenocortical hormones are examples of what class of hormone?
thick middle zone of the adrenal cortex that releases gluococorticoids
Tumor of chromaffin cells resulting in the overproduction of catecholamines.
these cells secrete calcitonin
thryrotropic hormone (TSH) is released by acidophils or basophils of the anterior pituitary?
maintains structure and stimulates secretion of glucocorticoids and gonadocorticoids.
these type of hormones regulate activity of hormones in other endocrine glands
cells specific to the posterior pituitary
cells of the adrenal medulla that secrete epinephrine and norepinephrine
embryologic origin of the posterior lobe of the pituitary?
membrane bound neurosecretory granules unite to form _____ ____ that contain oxytocin and vasopressin.
calcified concretions in the pineal gland
hormonal control classified as hormones secreted and acts on same cell
neurotransmitters synthesized from tryptophan
embryologic origin of the anterior lobe of the pituitary?
these cells secrete PTH
luteinizing hormone (LH) is released by acidophils or basophils of the anterior pituitary?
a pea sized compound endocrine gland that is also known as the hypohysis
_____ is an iodinated tyrosine derivative embedded within thyroglobulin, which is released during the endocytosis and lysosomal degradation. _______ then diffuses out of the cell.
QuestionAnswer
a roughly spherical cystlike compartment with a wall formed by simple cuboidal epithelium
stimulates myoepithelial cells of the mammary gland andstimulates contraction of smooth muscle in the pregnant uterus
the inner zone of the adrenal cortex that is involved in producing the sex hormones or androgens
oxytocin is secreted by the ______ nuclei?
true or false: ADH acts to increase permeability of the distal portions of the nephron by acting on aquaporins
growth hormone is released by acidophils or basophils of the anterior pituitary?
this class of hormones does not readily need transport proteins when released in the blood
somatostatin _____ the release of growth hormone.
norepinephrine and epinephrine are examples of what class of hormone?
principal component of the colloid
regulates body rhythms and day/night cycles and inhibits secretion of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) from the hypothalamus, which regulates the release of FSH and LH.
True or False: The pineal gland arises from an outpocketing of the diencephalon
hormonal control classified as hormones secreted from one cell to act on adjacent cells.
stimulates thyroid growth and secretion of thyroxines
ADH is secreted by the ______ nuclei.
synthesized from tyrosine and packaged into secretory vesicles
release of aldosterone from the adrenal gland is stimulated by what?
what hormone stimulates the release of growth hormone?
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
adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) is released by acidophils or basophils of the anterior pituitary?
hormone promotes mammary growth and initiates milk formation
comprises the bulk of the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland. arises from the thickened anterior wall of the pouch
IGF-1 is produced by _____.
this hormone increases blood calcium by promoting release from bones
QuestionAnswer
the portion of the adrenal gland that produces catecholamines
True or False: The release of catecholamines and peptide hormones occurs by merocrine secretion, while thyroxine and steroid hormones diffuse across the membrane.
thin remnant of the posterior wall of the pouch of the anterior pituitary lobe that abuts the pas distalis
hormonal control classified as hormones secreted into the blood to be transported to the effector cell.
insulin, glucagon, growth hormone, and FSH are examples of what class of hormone?
what embryonic structure descends in the neck and divides into left and right thyroid lobes.
this hormone decreases blood calcium by stimulating absorption of calcium by the bones
gel-like mass within the thyroid follicle
portion of the posterior pituitary that contains neurosecretory axons and their endings
endocrine gland that regulates daily body rhythm
the portion of the adrenal gland that produces steroid hormones
follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) is is released by acidophils or basophils of the anterior pituitary?
prolactin is released by acidophils or basophils of the anterior pituitary?
stimulates follicular development and spermatogenesis
hormone release by the anterior pituitary stimulates kidney and liver to secrete IGF-1, which stimulates bone growth
this molecule inhibits the release of prolactin
decreases urine volume by increasing reabsorption of water by collecting ducts, decreases perspiration in response to dehydration, and increases blood pressure by stimulating contr
narrow outer zone of the adrenal cortex that secretes mineralcortacoids
chief cells of the pineal gland
these cells are responsible for the production of T3 and T4
this class of hormones requires a transport protein such as androgen binding protein to reach target cells
released upon the endocytosis and lysosomal degradation of iodothyroglobulin
develops from the thickened lateral walls of the pouch of the anterior pituitary and forms a collar or sheath around the infundibulum
