QuestionAnswer
cortisol is made where?
The hormone that inhibits the release of growth hormone from the anterior pituitary comes from the _____ nucleus of the hypothalamus.
what is responsible for transporting catecholamines in and out of chromaffin granules?
True or False: The parvocellular neurons of the hypothalamic nuclei release releasing or inhibiting hormones in the circulation at the median eminence.

hormone that inhibits the release of growth hormone
percentage of norepinephrine or noreadrenaline made by the adrenal medulla
type of trophic endocrine cell that synthesizes adrenocorticotropic hormone, B endorphin, y-lipotropin

in stressful situations, cortisol acts on which enzyme?
type of trophic endocrine cell that synthesizes prolactin

what is the major metabolite of epinephrine and norepinephrine in the urine?
carrier proteins for ADH and oxytocin
percentage of epinephrine or adrenaline made by the adrenal medulla
catalyzes the conversion of dopamine to norepinephrine?
release of what substance from the arcuate nucleus of the hypothalamus cause the inhibition of the release of prolactin?
catalyzes the conversion of norepinephrine to epinephrine?
oxytocin predominantly comes from which nucleus of the hypothalamus?
The Beta class of adrenergic receptors acts to _____ cAMP levels
True or False: Norepinephrine and epinephrine required a carrier protein to be transported in the blood.
ADH V2 receptors are located in the ________
which hormone stimulates the release of TSH(mostly) and prolactin from the anterior pituitary?

Thyrotropin releasing hormone can come from which 2 hypothalamic nuclei?
the conversion of dopamine to norepinephrine occurs where in the cell?
the effect of ADH on blood vessels
QuestionAnswer
