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