QuestionAnswer
steroidogenesis begins with what compound
T/F: Cortisol acts as a negative feedback regulator at the anterior pituitary and hypothalamus
gene responsible for encoding 11 B hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase
T/F: Cortisol can only bind the glucocorticoid receptor.
catalyzes the conversion of progesterone to 11-deoxycorticosterone
inactive form of cortisol
what catalyzes the conversion of cholesterol to pregnenolone?
True or False: 17 a hydroxylase deficiency causes increased mineralocorticoids and glucocorticoids.
conversion of cholesterol to pregenolone takes place in what organelle
True or False: Glucocorticoid and Mineralocorticoid receptors are intracellular acting primarily by regulating transcription
these 2 enzymes catalze the conversion of pregnenolone to DHEA.
True or False: aldosterone synthase deficiency presents with ambiguous genitalia
melanocortin receptor involved in anorexia
Cortisol acts to _____ lipolysis.
True or False: 17 a hydroxylase deficiency causes increased androgens in the blood
Gene responsible for encoding for aldosterone synthase
Gene responsible for encoding 3B hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase
hormone disorder chasracterized by high levels of ACTH. Patients generally have a redistribution of fat to the truncal areas of the body, with muscle wasting at the extremties
catalyzes the conversion of cortisol to cortisone so that it can be inactivated
responsible for the conversion of corticosterone to aldosterone
T/F: Adrenal gland size is proportional to the stimulation of the gland.
A baby born with defective CYP21 will have high or low levels of ACTH?
Gene responsible for encoding 11B hydrolase
True or False: overstimulation of cortisol can cause diabetes.
Cortisol acts to coordinate actions in the muscle and liver. It causes the release of Amino acids by the muscle for uptake by the liver for what metabolic process?
melanocortin receptor involved in pigmentation
True or False: Cortisol levels generally peak around midnight.
defective gene in lipoid hyperplasia
pregnenolone is converted to progestrone in which organelle of the cell?
QuestionAnswer
the region of the adrenal cortex that secretes androgens
these 2 enzymes catalze the conversion of pregnenolone to progesterone
True or False: Patients with Cushing's disease have normal circadian rhythm of ACTH release.
A baby born with 21 hydroxylase deficiency will have _____ mineralocorticoid and glucocorticoid levels.
A baby born with 11B hydroxylase deficiency high or low glucocorticoids.
True or False: The melanocortin family of receptors are G protein coupled receptors.
this congential adrenal hyperplasia occurs as a result of defective CYP11B2
A baby born with21 hydroxylase deficiency has ___ blood pressure.
melanocortin receptor that binds ACTH stimulating steroidogenesis
True or False: A female baby born with defective CYP21 has increased production of DHEA, causing ambiguous genitalia.
Primary Addison's disease is caused by a deficiency of ____.
CAH characterized by salt wasting, normal glucocorticoids, normal androgens, and low blood pressure
the region of the adrenal cortex that secretes mineralocorticoids
True or False: Cortisol decreases red blood cell production.
True or False: 17 a hydroxylase deficiency causes increased blood pressure
Secondary Addison's disease is caused by a deficiency of ____.
Pro-opiomelanocortin is the precursor for what hormone released from the anterior pituitary?
no steroids are made in this disorder
the region of the adrenal cortex that secretes glucocorticoids
Gene responsible for encoding 17 a hydroxylase and 17 20 desmolase
Cortisol cause an increase in gluconeogensis and a _____ in glucose uptake.
can cause ambiguous genitalia in males and absent puberty in females because androgens are not able to be made. can occur as a result of defective CYP17
channel responsible for transporting cholesterol into the mitochondria

patients with an adrenal tumor will have high or low levels of ACTH?
Gene responsible for encoding 21 hydroxylase
A baby born with 11B hydroxylase deficiency high or low blood pressure
ADH (vasopressin) and Corticotropin releasing hormone cause the release of what hormone from the anterior pituitary?
True or False: A baby born with 11B hydroxylase deficiency will have increased androgen production leading to ambiguous genitalia in females
